    hi

    @celano : did you read the manual and search the net before asking ????
    https://www.google.fr/search?q=wordpress+translate+theme ???
    and : http://codex.wordpress.org/Translating_WordPress ?
    find the esplanade.pot file in the wwp-content/themes/esplanade/languages directory, and use any tool you like (see codex) to generate a .mo file in your language that you will upload to the same languages directory of the theme

    @mrtbytom : i didn't try a translation but i see no reason why the translation should not work... are you sure there is no problem with your .mo file ??

    I have the same problem with translating esplanade.pot file via Poedit and then using the resulting po and mo files. I named them esplanade.po and esplanade.mo and placed them into the directory where I have found the original esplanade.pot file. Alas! Nothing happen! The theme is still in English.

    @anapest Is your WordPress installation in English or in the language you want the theme to be? Have you correctly named your .mo file? The filename should be the language code your WP installation is in, for example: es_ES.mo if you want it in Spanish.
    More information in the links baignoire has provided.
    Good luck.

    Hello, LucasVieites. Inititally my installation and backend were in English and frontend in Russian. Later I tried all-Russian installation but the result was the same in both cases: all messages from the WordPress itself were in that language which I expected them to be (English only at the backend and only when I wanted it to be there) but my Esplanade"s child theme talked to me exclusively in English.

    Fortunately I have found a way out at last. I used the Codestyling Localization plugin for translating all the Esplanada's messages. I had to translate the theme only once and now plan to get rid of the plugin in my WordPress installation. So I highly recommend this plugin to everybody who has problems with Esplanade's localization.
