    It manages PO files, so you should be familiar with working with these.

    There is no step-by-step guide beyond the installation instructions. This plugin is aimed at developers or translators that are familiar with Gettext and/or translating WordPress.

    I don't know what you mean by traducing your theme, or linking it to your website. It sounds like this plugin does not suit your needs.

    ok, I understand now you're saying you've translated your theme. However I don't know exactly what you've done as there are several things to do when translating a theme.

    I will write up some step-by-step instructions at some point and post a link here when I have.

    Ok thanks a lot. I wait it !

    I have another problem.
    I received a message like that when i want to save my traduction :
    Error: Gettext msgfmt exited with code -1; Got 0 bytes from 2424 bytes

    I don't understant but the result is i can't save my traduction.

    What can i do ?
    Thanks

    Your translation is probably saved in the PO file, but this message means it couldn't generate a MO file from the PO file. Hit the settings tab and enter the path to msgfmt on your system.

    1/ it's writing by default to the settings tab :

    Gettext msgfmt
    Path to msgfmt program for compiling MO files:
    /usr/bin/msgfmt

    is i have to change ?

    2/ When i want to create a new file to translate i have that :
    "PO file already exists with locale fr_FR"

    That's good but i don't know how to obtain this file. I don't see it...

    Some of the issues you've reported are fixed in the current development version (1.3.2) and will be published to the stable version quite soon as v1.4.

    I've also written a quick guide here: https://localise.biz/help/wordpress/translate-plugin

    I hope this helps.
