To translate some strings in my HTML, I'm using the following function which is working totally fine to replace every string coming in double curly braces:

var translation = html.replace(/\{[^\}]*\}/g, function(match){

    // where the magic happens
});


How can I change the RegEx to match the pattern %string% instead of {{string}}?

    Hi John!

    Your current pattern actually doesn't match double curly braces, it matches only single curly braces, but anyway if you want to match %string% then you can use:

    /%[^%]*%/g
