Language Translations


All of our Themes are able to be translated into any language. The process of translating the theme is a user responsibility.
The following instructions are given as guidance.

  1. Open wp-config.php and replace this:
    define ('WPLANG', '');	
    with this (subsitute the language string (bg_BG) with your own!):
    define ('WPLANG', 'bg_BG'); 
  2. Download and install POEDIT
  3. Connect to your site -> open your theme/languages directory
  4. Download the default.po file and open it with POEDIT.
  5. Translate file and save it as bg_BG (the file name must match with the string you inserted into wp-config.php)
  6. Two files will be generated after save. bg_BG.po and bg_BG.mo
  7. Upload the .mo and .po files into wp-content/themes/your-theme/languages folder

Your WordPress installation should be in the language you intend on using the site.
