There are two different approaches to translating your website content:
- To fully translate your website to some other language than English (ex.: when you want your website to have content written on French only )
- To have multiply languages on the same website (ex. when you need BOTH French and English version of the same content).
Translating content to some other language than English
Our theme include /cloudios/languages/ folder with en_GB.po/.mo files ready. These files include all the text strings (interface) used in our theme. Use it to create new .po/.mo files for your language (ex.: for French you will need fr_FR.po/.mo files created based on English version).
To translate interface strings using WP admin area, please try plugins like Loco Translate or create a new .po/.mo files using applications like POEdit as described bellow:
- Change your WordPress language in WP Admin > Settings > General > Site Language
- Create a copy of en_GB.po file and rename to your language code like fr_FR.po for French. (see WP locale code for your language here)
- Translate the strings needed in the new file using POEdit software.
- Save the edited file with strings to both .po and .mo formats using POEdit
- Copy new .po/.mo files into /wp-content/languages/themes/ and rename the file as in following example: cloudios-fr_FR.mo
Multiple languages on the same website
Our theme will work with WPML plugin that can be used to create and manage multilingual websites.
Our theme support RTL languages, but this functionality isn't officially released yet, so please use it on your own risk.
