  • Hi,

    #01 I’m using Mystique theme, and I’d like to change the language of the theme from en to cz. I already have those files located on my computer. How can I do it? Do I have to write it into php somewhere?

    #02 How can I create my own language localization for this theme? I am talking about the .mo and .po files.

    Thanks in advance.

    Answer 1: This is my answer to a plugin question, but it’s basically the same for themes. You need to match the WPLANG setting in wp-config.php file and the .mo file in the theme file.

    Only difference from plugin translation is that theme MO file name doesn’t have to have the “textdomain” (leading text before the locale name).
    If you have a localized version of WordPress, take a look at the default theme directory.

    Answer 2: The easiest way is to open the PO file using Poedit. When you save changes, Poedit saves MO file (you need this for localization. PO is just a source file).


    Thank you very much! I am sure this will help.
