Tips

A neat trick, is to put this single file admin-footer-version-rebranded.php (not its parent directory) in the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory (create it if not exists) so you won’t even have to enable it, and will be loaded by default, also, since first step installation of WordPress setup!

Also, for translation functionality, put all files of the single languages (admin-footer-version-rebranded-en_US.mo for example) that you need (not its parent directory) in the /wp-content/mu-plugins/ directory (create it if not exists) and will be loaded by default, they also, since first step installation of WordPress setup!

About it

Disclaimer

Given that greater was the languages in which the readme.txt file is translated, greater will be the possibility of reaching a larger number of people, even through the use of search engines, with the exception of the main descriptions, it is considerable a good practice, not to translate the changelog of the file readme.txt file in the various languages different from en_US (except for the other english languages derived from english – this is not a rule – everyone is free to translate or not translate according to the indications of their own polyglots community) to standardize the understanding of its technical content, and not to introduce new errors due to the misunderstanding of its correct translation. It should also be added that a good compilation of it can be represented by the perspective of offering the best description possible on what it does, on its characteristics, and its functioning. This, does not represent, or wants to represent, a rule, a condition, a suggestion, but it indicates the motivation for which the changelog of this plugin was left in english.
