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.
