Loco Translate

Translate WordPress plugins and themes directly in your browser

Installing manually:

  1. Unzip all files to the /wp-content/plugins/loco-translate directory
  2. Log into WordPress admin and activate the 'Loco Translate' plugin through the 'Plugins' menu
  3. Go to Loco Translate > Manage Translations in the left-hand menu to start translating

Basic usage:

To translate a theme into your language, follow these steps:

  1. Create the global languages directory at wp-content/languages/themes
  2. Ensure this directory writeable by the web server
  3. Find the theme in the list at Loco Translate > Manage Translations
  4. Click + New language and follow the on-screen prompts.

Important: Step 2 above is critical if you don’t want to lose your translations when your theme is updated. Translation files saved inside theme directories will be deleted by WordPress auto-update. The global languages directory is safe, but must be writeable by your web server for Loco Translate to save files in it.

To translate your own theme or plugin for distribution, follow these steps:

  1. Create a languages subdirectory in your plugin or theme's root directory
  2. Ensure this directory writeable by the web server
  3. Find the theme or plugin in the list at Loco Translate > Manage Translations
  4. Click + New language and follow the on-screen prompts.
