Hey creative people! how are you doing? I hope you all are doing awesome.

I have a question. I frequently buy templates around here and sometimes I need to translate them to spanish. I know how to translate the WP Dashboard, but what about if I want to translate the other terms and words?

Like for example, 1 comment, 2 comments, search, etc. All those words that are associated with the code itself.

What I usually do is go through the php files but takes a lot of time to find where the words are in english.

If there is anyone with a suggestion, thank so much in advanced! have an awesome day.

Thanks for taking time to read this.

The theme have to be localized. With the .po and .mo file to make it easier.

The coder must provide you that feature, I think that feature is a most have in all the premium themes.

It really is a pain in the * man, But that’s the only way to translate terms that come outside of the basic wordpress dashboard.

You can hire someone to do it for you but like Ivor said sometimes author provide that with their theme.

Only recently I’ve managed to get that functionality to my latest theme by providing a PO file for translation. Man it’s a lot of work but if you keep things right from the start of development the buyers will appreciate it.
