  • English - default, always included
  • German (de_DE): Deutsch - immer dabei! Download auch via deckerweb.de
  • For custom and update-secure language files please upload them to /wp-content/languages/bbpress-string-swap/ (just create this folder) - This enables you to use fully custom translations that won't be overridden on plugin updates. Also, complete custom English wording is possible with that, just use a language file like bbpress-string-swap-en_US.mo/.po to achieve that (for creating one see the following tools).

Easy plugin translation platform with GlotPress tool: Translate "bbPress String Swap"...

Note: All my plugins are internationalized/ translateable by default. This is very important for all users worldwide. So please contribute your language to the plugin to make it even more useful. For translating I recommend the awesome "Codestyling Localization" plugin and for validating the "Poedit Editor", which works fine on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Additional Info

Idea Behind / Philosophy: I've come across some user requests to change the title of the forums archive (a.k.a. root view). When researching for the proper filter for changing this I thought it would be handy to also change a few important breadcrumb parameters along with the title :). So this plugin was born. Nothing spectacular, though. Maybe a few other strings will be added in the future (only if it makes sense!).
