Child theme language files
I’m making a child theme and I was wondering if I created the language file correctly. I took the parent theme’s .po and I merged it with the .po file of the child theme so it looks something like this:
#: parent/index.php:161 msgid "Read more" msgstr "" #: child/header.php:73 msgid "Welcome!" msgstr ""
I placed the new .po file in my child themes languages folder. This is code that is in the parent theme to load the language file:
// Make theme available for translation // Translations can be filed in the /languages/ directory load_theme_textdomain(PW_THEME_FILE, TEMPLATEPATH . '/languages'); $locale = get_locale(); $locale_file = TEMPLATEPATH . "/languages/$locale.php"; if ( is_readable( $locale_file ) ) require_once( $locale_file );
Should I copy that code into the child theme’s functions.php file or do I need to use the load_child_theme_textdomain() function?
Any help would be appreciated.
