_c ›

_c ( $text, $domain = 'default' )
Parameters: (2)
  • (string) $text Text to translate
    Required: Yes
  • (string) $domain Optional. Domain to retrieve the translated text
    Required: No
    Default: 'default'
  • (string) Translated context string without pipe
Defined at:

Retrieve translated string with vertical bar context

Quite a few times, there will be collisions with similar translatable text found in more than two places but with different translated context. In order to use the separate contexts, the _c() function is used and the translatable string uses a pipe ('|') which has the context the string is in. When the translated string is returned, it is everything before the pipe, not including the pipe character. If there is no pipe in the translated text then everything is returned.
