[resolved] How to update localization? (3 posts)

    Hey there,

    I tried to update the German localization as there are some mistakes in it. Hence, I modified the dk_speakup-de_DE.po file, but the new sentences are not displayed on my blog. Any hints how to do it properly?

    You should get a copy of PoEdit to make the changes.

    Basically, the file you edited is not directly read by WordPress. WordPress is reading from dk_speakup-de_DE.mo. Files with the extension .po can be edited to change the translations, but then they have to be compiled. The compiled file will have a .mo extension.

    Using PoEdit, you can edit the .po file and when you click save, a new .mo file will be created. You may then place both the .mo and .po files back on your server in the languages folder and things should work as expected.

    If you have improvements to the translations, please send them to me so that I can include them in the plugin for others to use. I can be reached at kreg [at] designkode.com
