    If you are sure you did everything in the doc you linked, a likely place for a blunder is getting the path to your .mo files wrong. The example in the doc to load text domain is misleading if you use a child theme. You should be calling load_child_theme_textdomain(). And the correct child theme path is obtained from get_stylesheet_directory(). For example:

    function wpdocs_child_theme_setup() {
        load_child_theme_textdomain( 'my_child_theme', get_stylesheet_directory() . '/languages' );
    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'wpdocs_child_theme_setup' );

    Your .mo files need to be with your child theme in the /languages subfolder.
