Translation & WPML
We will show you how to translate Theme and our Core-plugin using
- WPML plugin
If you are running a Multi language site, you need to install the WPML plugin Or if you are running a Single language site other than English. Say for example if you are running “French” site only You can go with “poedit”.
- designtheme is referring to Theme-folder (wp-content / themes / theme-folder(mypen))
- fr_FR is referring to French language code
- “Designthemes-core” is referring to slug name of Core-Plugin
First, you need to change language, For ex: “French”
Step 1 : Go to Dashboard / Settings /
General and select language(ex: French language ) then save settings.
Second, you need to create language-code.po file and translate words.
Step 2 : Please go to wp-content / themes /
My Pen / languages / – Here you can find theme pot file
(In our older themes, you can see default.po file)
- For ex, designtheme-slug-name.pot – Rename this pot file into po file.
- Ex: designtheme-slug-name.pot into fr_FR.po (OR) default.po into fr_FR.poHere : fr_FR is French language code
Step 3 : Open fr_FR.po file and translate the words.
Finally you will get the mo file there while saving the .po file. After translating words you can check those changes in front-end.
