Translation – top

This theme is translation/localization ready and comes with vergo.po file. File is located in ‘lang’ folder.

  1. You need to use localized WordPress installation (core): WordPress in Your Language.
    If not localization will be not successful.
  2. Download poedit software here,
  3. Install it and in this software translate vergo.po file (line by line) screens,
  4. Once you have translated all the strings, you can save this as your .po file.The filename of your .po is crucial. Gettext uses the ISO 639 standard for language abbreviations and ISO 3166 for locales. If your translation is written in American English for example, your file name will look like en_US.po. Capitalization is also important here. For a full list of language and country codes, check out these two links:

    Once you save, POEdit by default automatically creates a .mo file alongside your .po file. Put these files into ‘lang’ folder.

  5. Access your wp-config.php file found in your WordPress’ root folder. Your file should already contain define(‘WPLANG’, ”); but if it does not, you can add it in. You simply need to add your language and locale code into the define. If you were to translate your theme into German, you would have this:
     define('WPLANG', 'de_DE');

Your internationalization is complete!
