  • Hmm… i’d prefer to convert my whole site into UTF-8, but haven’t found a way, I recall translating those .mo and .po before, but you need a program for those, i must research again.

    Oh, now i recall, you need a program named UltraEdit and PoEdit.

    Open the .po file in UE.


    File > Convert > UTF-8 to Ascii

    Change where it says UTF-8 for iso-8859-1,save, open with PoEdit,check the setting, it must say iso-8859-1.

    Save and upload, that must be an iso file in spanish.

    Oh, btw, i used the es_Es translation from

    myuption i resolve the problem with PoEdit only.
    The new spanish blogs i wiil setting in UTF-8.
