Hello SS community!

Having a little problem tranlating custom text placed in

So I have my page in three languages, and I want to make custom placed text change depenting on page language.

I have added in sapphire/lang/ru_RU, en_US, lv_LV following lines:

$lang['ru_RU']['']['subtitle'] = 'i'm ru text.';

$lang['en_US']['']['subtitle'] = ''i'm en text.';

$lang['lv_LV']['']['subtitle'] = ''i'm lv text.';

Then in I've added <% _t("subtitle","subtitle") %>, but unfortunetly when I change languages the text is displayed in english all the time. Other thing translation like navigation, $Title works fine.

What I'm doing wrong? Thank you!

Removed the en_US, changed <% _t("subtitle","subtitle") %> to <% _t("subtitle","i'm en text.") %>, still nothing.
