    Rename the files name for Finnish:

    bbpress-fi.po = fi_FI.po
    bbpress-fi.mo = fi_FI.mo

    You can view the available translations, and sign-up to volunteer to officially maintain translations, over at the GlotPress page:

    Hi.

    I just installed bbPress plugin version 2.0. I have donwloaded a language file from Glotpress. The file looks like this: bbpress-plugin-da.po

    Where should I place it and do I need to rename it?

    Thanks
    Vayu

    Hi OC2PS.

    Yes, I placed my language files her:

    wp-content/languages/bbpress/bbpress-da_DK.mo
    wp-content/languages/bbpress/bbpress-da_DK.po

    Hope it works for you.

    That worked. Thanks!

    It's an odd location for language files, though, considering that most plugins need to be self-contained and have a /langauges folder within the plugin folder.

    Great! :-)

    Yes, but this way the language files are safe from being overwritten on bbpress plugin updates. I think this is a good place to store them actually. Some plugins allow you to store language files in the theme folder, but this has limitations for when you want to change your theme.

    If the bbpress language files were stored in /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-languages folder (which already exists, btw, and contains bbpress.pot), I don't think there would be a great danger of being overwritten on plugin updates :-)

    And that would keep the plugin self-contained as well, just as they are supposed to be....

    Hmm, this is not my experience. Might have something to with the fact that I am on a Mac, which overwrites everything inside the directory.

    I am not sure if this is the case with the way WP automatically updates, but I actually had this very issue happen to me today. I used the automatic update to update WooCommerce plugin, which stores its language files in /wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/languages/ and my language files where deleted.

    Very strange. I always use WP automatic updates, and not once have I had my plugin language files overwritten for any plugin!
