We personally use WPML – WORDPRESS MULTI LINGUAL PLUGIN , so the website can have multiple languages. So no messy .mo and .po files. Lots of the other users have panels in theme options that translate strings ( no multilanguage ) or .mo or .po files.

With WPML you can translate any string in the theme. Like the read more buttons, the search text… any text that is outputted by the theme. This is the case for mine and i presume for a lot more users.

OK, thanks – I’ll will try the WPML in a more detailed way. I didn’t find where to translate the “fixed” text, only the variables…

thanks, again

Just like duotive I support WPML in my most recent theme but I also include MO and PO files for 6 languages, buyers appreciate it :)

OK, back to WPML … Hi. I have struggled for several hours with WPML Plugin and it constantly change my default language from Norwegian to English. My WP installation is in English, with the nb_NO in the config file (Norwegian). Ones I install the WPML plugin, my site change from Norwegian to English. Even thought I change the default languge in WPML , still English is default.. I have tried every thing…. but the WPML plugin are not to be used. So, my question is:

I have made a locale .po file for the Corporate theme. Where do I place this file to make the theme have my locale language as default? When I placed the nb_NO.po file in /wp-content/themes/corporate/languages it dosen’t work. Do I need to create a .po or .pot file instead???

Appriciate your feedback
