    Hi,
    I created a child theme and a language files directory where I placed my translated language files. So my blog appeared in german.
    Yesterday I updated to the new twenty eleven version and suddenly everything is in english again though my dashbord is still in german.

    What went wrong?

    Now this is strange:
    I just copied the translates language files from the child theme langauge directory to the twenty eleven language directory. Suddenly it is in german again.
    Why does the theme not search first in the child theme language directory if there are any language files?

    Thanks!

    I've also just upgraded my Twenty Eleven theme from version 1.2 to 1.3 – and lost the localization.

    But in my case the language files didn't reside in the child-theme folder. When it was version 1.2 the /wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/languages/ contained several .po/.mo-files. And these files get deleted by the upgrade.

    Are these files not originally part of the version 1.2 theme? Or should they have been part of the 1.3 theme?

    And yes, coping the .po./.mo-files (from 1.2) back to the parent theme folder (/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/languages/) helps.

    Thank you. That is what I did, now "almost" everything look ok.
