I added my translation to the theme. I was hoping that this supports child theme but it seems it doesn't because my child theme is not listed on the theme list. So I go ahead and translate the main theme. After translation I generate the mo file. Now I see that the new language is added on my theme but English is still bold so I am assuming it is still the active language being used by my theme.
Mys question now is how will I activated my newly added language to the theme only. I want wordpress to stay in English. I only want the theme to be translated.
