Translating Theme

This guide covers the basics of translating the template.

If you downloaded localized version of WordPress, and you wish to translate the template to the same language – you can skip the “Setting up WordPress for translation” step

Setting up WordPress for translation

This step is only for people who downloaded the original English version from WordPress.org and despite that wish to use the template in other language.

To enable WordPress to load template language file:-

  • Using your favorite text editor open file wp-config.php from your WordPress directory
  • Locate the line: define (‘WPLANG’, ”);
  • In the second quotes (next to WPLANG) please type in your language code ie. for Polish pl_PL, for Deutsch de_DE, for Italiano it_IT etc.
  • Final result of line should look like: define (‘WPLANG’, ‘pl_PL’);
  • Save the file
Complete lists of codes can be found at (country codes) and (language codes)

Translating the template

  • Download the .pot file editor such as POedit (multi-platform)
  • Open the editor and choose New Catalog from POT File
  • Open the template_name.pot file from the template directory (http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/template_name/)
  • Click on a single phrase or sentence and type in your translation in the bottom of the POedit window
  • Save the file using Save As and as a filename use your country and language code ie. for Polish pl_PL, for Deutsch de_DE, for Italiano it_IT etc.
If you want to you can share your translation with us so we could provide your language file to other users of WordPress Club here at RocketTheme.

Installing downloaded translation file for template

Sharing your translation with RocketTheme

  • After translating your .po file POedit also creates the .mo file which contains your encrypted translation
  • Just send us your country_code.mo (depending on what language is your translation) file located in (http://www.yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/template_name/) and tell us for what country and what language is your translation

I want to show appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this issue. Right after surfing throughout the the web and coming across proposals that were not helpful, I believed my entire life was done. Being alive devoid of the solutions to the problems you have sorted out through your good report is a crucial case, and the ones which may have adversely affected my entire career if I hadn’t come across your blog post. Your main competence and kindness in controlling all the things was priceless. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I hadn’t come upon such a thing like this. It’s possible to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks very much for this high quality and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to refer your blog to anybody who should receive tips on this topic.
