Support » Theme: Brand New Day » [Theme: Brand New Day] Language changes?

  • Hi there!
    This is my first time using WordPress, and I’ve choosed to use your cool theme. I have duplicated the original brandnewday.po and .mo files, changed the name to es_ES.po and .mo, and I’ve translated them to spanish, but I don’t know how to change the default language to this. Can you please help me?

    PS: I’d like to share my translation to you if you are interested.

    These guides should help:

    And I’d love your help with the Spanish translation! You can send the files directly to

    Actually, I have got my WordPress on spanish, but I can’t use the translation files for your theme.
    This is the line added to wp-config.php:
    define ('WPLANG', 'es_ES');
    And the translation files of the theme are named and es_ES.po
    This is the content of es_ES.po:

    There’s something wrong with this file?

    Honestly I’m not sure… I use POEdit to generate my po/mo files. I know the theme has been successfully translated into other languages before, so I don’t think it’s an issue with the original files.

    Maybe someone with more experience in this area can weigh in?
