Public Ticket #264580
Translate - No changes in frontpage


  • Maximiliano started the conversation

    I am trying to translate my flavor site to spanish language. I change the strings in .PO file but nothing happens in frontpage, no changes. I miss something?

    I know that i can change the translations in PHP files, but if I update the theme, the PHP files will be replaced and all translations I already made would be lost.

    Any clue to identify the problem and solve this?

    I already followed those steps before posting this. But nothing happens. I translate the .po I create the .mo, both with es_ES name.

    So, in LANGUAGE folder I have next files:


    I need delete the en_US files? How I tell wordpress/flavor that es_ES.mo/po are the files that I need?

    You have to have WordPress installed in your language in the first place for it to read those translation files. Did you install WordPress in English or Spanish originally?

    I have all my WordPress in Spanish. In this case im talking about the LANGUAGE folder in wp-content/languages
    and in flavor/lang i have es_ES.po and es_ES.mo but nothing happens in frontpage.

    I have never actually translated a theme before personally. I provide the working .po file (which I have done) and the rest is done by the user. I'm not really sure why it's not working on your end, but I can confirm that all other users have been able to translate the theme correctly using the steps listed in the FAQ. I recommend using WordPress support for further information about how to implement translation files in a theme and help for troubleshooting why it might not be working.
