    Hi,

    I am trying to figure out an easy way to translate the # ‘photos’ tag below album titles. I tried translating with Loco Translate plugin, but without a desired effect. Any quick tips how to go about it? Just to clarify – I have now photonic.-sk_SK.mo and photonic-sk_SK.po files in photonic/languages folder and all terms that contain the word ‘photos’ are translated into a desired form. But the translations are not displayed as desired.

    My website: http://www.skmbrussels.be.

    Best regards,

    Vladimir

    I haven’t experimented much with this, but maybe putting your files directly in the photonic folder will help.

    @mbrsolution,
    Since you have worked on translations for this, can you provide some guidelines on the file location?

    @vsolanic, just to be clear about what it is that you want to translate. Can you share a screen capture pointing to the area that you want to translate.

    I did start a while back to do some Spanish translation using the following area https://translate.wordpress.org/locale/es/default/wp-plugins/photonic.

    Kind regards

    Thank you to both for your reactions. Here is a screenshot from http://www.skmbrussels.be/fotogaleria where I display all albums from a relevant Google Photos account.

    You can see that underneath the album name, there is a tag with the number of photos. I would like to translate the word ‘photos’ into Slovak language, which is the language of the website. As I explained in my original contribution, right now I have two translation files photonic-sk_SK.po and photonic-sk_SK.mo located in the following folder:photonic/languages. I thought it would be sufficient to place those two files in there and that the translation would load. But this is not happening.

    Hi, it looks like you have solved your own issue. If that is the case can you share what you did so that others that run into the same issue as you can follow your instructions.

    Thank you

    Hi,

    indeed – I managed to get the translations working. As I was mentioning previously, I used Loco Translate plugin. I am not really sure what exactly did the trick, but in the current configuration, I let Loco Translate to save the translation files (i.e. photonic-sk_SK.mo and photonic-sk_SK.po) not in the plugin folder (i.e. wp-content/plugins/photonic/languages), but instead I have it now saved in wp-content/languages/plugins. Again, I am not sure if this is what made the difference, but it works now.

    Once again, thank you for your willingness to help!

    Best regards,

    Vladimir

    Hi, thank you for sharing your solution.

    It makes perfect sense if the language files are added to the following path /wp-content/languages/plugins/. The plugin language files are placed in this directory by WordPress polyglot translation from the following path https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/photonic

    Although it is very strange that it did not work while having the language files po and mo in the following directory /wp-content/plugins/photonic/languages. It does not make sense to me. However it is working for you and that is the most important part.

    @sayontan you might like to investigate this further when ever you have some free time if you like.

    Kind regards
