EVERY english text in the theme must have coding to make auto translation possible
YOu cannot translate the missing pieces by adding to the mo if the theme does not work
Thanks 123milliseconds! That makes it clearer. Now let see if there is a solution.
P2 is a theme I like because there is a front-end editor for the owner/users. The P2 Theme page sends us here for support.
I downloaded it from wordpress.org and it really says that the theme is translation ready. The French translation files are present too. But it doesn't get translated when I use it with a French WordPress latest version fresh install.
Now, is there a solution? Does anyone know how to actually reach the authors of P2? Has P2 been replaced by another theme?
Thanks to all for your help!
