  • How do I change the language to Spanish?
    I upload the files:
    2. ultimatemember-es_ES.po
    In the “language” folder, and it does not work, do you have to do something else?

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

  • There is another post which explains that Ultimate Member has migrated to the correct WordPress format: ultimate-member-en-US, or in Spanish: ultimate-member-es-ES.

    Please try that file name format to see if it works for you! ¡Buena suerte!

    Hi @mluco,

    To make Ultimate member work with the WordPress official translation system we had to change the text domain slug of UM from “ultimatemember” to “ultimate-member”

    To use your existing translation you need to change the filename of all your po/mo files to use the textdomain “ultimate-member”

    e.g “ultimatemember-en_US” should be changed to “ultimate-member-en-US”


    Hi, sorry, where can I get hold of already translated Spanish language files for UM?
    Please excuse the dumb q – new to this
    Or do I have to translate myself?

    @benslaters You can find it here:

    I am translating and hope to have it complete by mid-May. Please email me directly and I can share; I will update the web-based version too.


    Where can I find and download the spanish files: and ultimatemember-es_ES.po

    Thank you very much!

    Go to the above link, then use the “export” command at the bottom of the page to download the [most current translation of the] Spanish file(s). You can then upload them to your server.

    Thank you very much for your help. I did it but I think I didn’t right, I still see sentences as “keep me signed”, “forgot your password” or “register” in buttons. Maybe it’s not in these files where I have to translate forms words. Thank you again!
