Product: Tao Contao
Contao Version: 4.11.2
Browser and version: Safari 14.0.3

Please give me a hint to where I change the text for: "Suchen" in the search box, and "read more" in the newslist. Just a small hint would be very helpfull.
Best Regards

    Thank you for submitting your question!

    To edit the “Suchen” label in the search box, navigate in the Contao backend to “Layout › Themes › Tao Frontend modules › Main Navigation Search” and set the label in “Suchfeld-Bezeichnung” and “Button-Bezeichnung”

    The “read more” link in the news list should get translated automatically depending on the language you configured in the root page of your website.

    More information about how to customize these translations can be found in the Contao documentation:
