    Hello, everyone:

    I have a theme.pot file that default provide in a theme.
    I used POedit to add a translation to specific string and saved it.

    But my theme seem does not take the translation at all.

    Do I missed some steps?

    Thank You

    But I think the step should be apply for all theme?
    Would just assume I am using twentyeleven theme help better understand it?

    Senario:

    The theme's .pot file is named jobroller.pot
    and I converted, it generate jobroller.po and jobroller.mo

    They contain arabic translation I wanted to translate after I saved it with PoEdit.

    I wonder how can I activate it?

    All phrase inside that jobroller.pot file is theme specific, not related to wordpress po file.

    I'm afraid that not all themes are the same. If you were using twentyeleven, you could just drop the .mo file into the languages sub-folder but your theme may be different. As it is a commercial theme, you need to ask on http://www.appthemes.com/support/

    so...what if I use twentyeleven and dropped into language folder, then what to do?

    If the file is named correctly (twentyeleven.mo, IIRC), it should work immediately.
