Translate a WordPress theme

To translate any of our themes you have a theme-name.po file in the languages folder (wp-content / themes / theme-name / languages) which is to translate the theme to any language. For the translation of the theme you need the free program Poedit (http://www.poedit.net/).

Basically the translation is done as follows:

  • theme-name.po doubles and rename it to ru_RU.po (or language code you need: https://wpcentral.io/internationalization/).
  • Open this file in free software Poedit.
  • Enter your russian language terms in the Poedit software
  • When you save the file ru_RU.po another called ru_RU.mo be created. You must upload both files to the ‘languages’ folder of your theme
