This simple plugin extends eShop with translation files. It does not need configuration. Just activate it on any site that has its language set to other than English and this plugin will try to provide eShop with the appropriate translation. That is, if it has a translation in your language available.
Translations in this files are done by other WordPress and eShop users and generously shared with the community. More translations will be added as soon as they become available.

Either Install now or use the slick search and install feature (Plugins > Add New and search for “eshop languages”) in your WP2.7+ admin section or follow these basic steps:
- Download archive and unpack.
- Upload the /eshop-languages/ folder and its content to the /plugins/ folder.
- Activate plugin on the Plug-ins page
- My language is not included. Does it not exist?
It might, it might not. Search the internet or start on the eShop support forums and if you find a recent translation and the translator is willing to share it, please let me know. I’ll include it in this plugin.
- How can I contribute?
Any new or updated translation is much appreciated. Below are the basic steps you need to take to create one:
- Install PoEdit on your computer.
- Go to this plugins directory.
- If there is no .po file that corresponds with your language yet, create a new empty file called eshop-xx_XX.po replacing the xx with your language code and XX with your country code.
- Open the .po file of your language with PoEdit.
- Go to Edit > Preferences and on the tab Editor check the option to compile a .mo database on save automatically. Close with OK.
- Go to Catalog > Settings and set your name, e-mail address, language and country. Close with OK.
- Go to Catalog > Update from POT-file and select the main eshop.pot file. Then accept all new and removed translation strings with OK.
- Now go ahead and start translating all the texts listed in PoEdit.
- When done, go to File > Save to Save.
- Upload the automatically created eshop-xx_XX.mo database file (where xx_XX should now be your language and country code) to the plugins directory on your WordPress site.
- After verifying the translation works on your site, send the .mo file and – if you’re willing to share it – your original .po file to ravanhagen at gmail dot com and don’t forget to tell me how and with what link you would like to be mentioned in the credits!
Thanks for sharing your translation 🙂
