Change WooCommerce default product sorting labels

The WooCommerce have 6 default product sorting option in archives and shop pages. They have default labels and in some WooCommerce customization, I want to change these labels.

To Quickly change translatable strings in theme or plugins, we can use WordPress gettext filter. So now we are going to use this filter to change product sorting labels in WooCommerce by adding a little code snippet in our theme’s functions.php file.

add_filter( 'gettext', 'theme_sort_change', 20, 3 );

function theme_sort_change( $translated_text, $text, $domain ) {
	if ( is_woocommerce() ) {
		switch ( $translated_text ) {
		case 'Sort by price: low to high' :
		$translated_text = __( 'Sort by Price: Lowest to Highest', 'theme_text_domain' );
		break;
		case 'Sort by price: high to low' :
		$translated_text = __( 'Sort by Price: Highest to Lowest', 'theme_text_domain' );
		break;
		case 'Sort by newness' :
		$translated_text = __( 'Sort by Newness', 'theme_text_domain' );
		break;
		case 'Sort by title: Alphabetically' :
		$translated_text = __( 'Sort by Title: Alphabetically', 'theme_text_domain' );
		break;
		case 'Sort by title: Reverse-Alphabetically' :
		$translated_text = __( 'Sort by Title: Reverse-Alphabetically', 'theme_text_domain' );
		break;
		case 'Default sorting' :
		$translated_text = __( 'Default Sorting', 'theme_text_domain' );
		break;
		}
	}
return $translated_text;
}
