Loco Translate

Translate WordPress plugins and themes directly in your browser

  1. Unzip all files to the /wp-content/plugins/loco-translate directory
  2. Log into WordPress admin and activate the 'Loco Translate' plugin through the 'Plugins' menu
  3. Go to Loco Translate > Manage Translations in the left-hand menu to start translating

If you want to create new translations for a theme or plugin, follow these steps:

  2. Make the new directory writable by the web server
  3. Find the theme or plugin in the list at Loco Translate > Manage Translations
  4. Click + New language and follow the on-screen prompts.

A quick guide on using the plugin is available here, but make sure you're familiar with the conventions of Translating WordPress before you start.

Please note that this plugin doesn’t support Windows servers and the editor doesn't fully support MSIE<=8.
