I've a multilanguage site in Magento 1.9. I set Italian like default language. There are some words in the footer that aren't translate. I added this words into csv file but the problem remains. It's shown in the following image: enter image description here

"QUICK LINKS", for example, remains in English language. I Found this string in only in the file page.xml and I try to change it but it isn't changed. The code part of this file where I found this string is the following:

<block type="page/html_footer" name="footer" as="footer" template="page/html/footer.phtml">
                <block type="page/html_wrapper" name="bottom.container" as="bottomContainer" translate="label">
                    <label>Page Footer</label>
                    <action method="setElementClass"><value>bottom-container</value></action>
                <block type="page/switch" name="store_switcher" as="store_switcher" after="*" template="page/switch/stores.phtml"/>
                <block type="page/template_links" name="footer_links" as="footer_links" template="page/template/links.phtml">
                    <action method="setTitle"><title>Quick Links</title></action>
                <block type="page/template_links" name="footer_links2" as="footer_links2" template="page/template/links.phtml">
                    <action method="setTitle"><title>Account</title></action>
                <!-- This static block can be created and populated in admin. The footer_links cms block can be used as a starting point. -->
                <!--<block type="cms/block" name="footer_social_links">
                    <action method="setBlockId"><block_id>footer_social_links</block_id></action>

Can you help me, please? Thank's!

It would be better to let English the default language and use in line translations so that every single is word is translated. Keep Italian as a different store.


you have to change text in xml file with your default language.

add also translate="title" in xml like below

<action method="setTitle" translate="title"><title>Quick Links</title></action>
