    Sounds good, let’s start recommending Polylang instead.

    It’s a shame that I missed this topic one year ago 🙁

    Fortunately, I provided this short plugin for users.

    Starting with Polylang 1.0, there should be no need for an additional plugin to translate Responsive theme options, as Polylang will be able to read the WPML config file. I just tested it with the Responsive theme and it seems to work 🙂

    If you want to test it too, I just released a first dev version which includes the feature.

    Thanks, I saw your plugin a bit earlier. I have added Polylang as a recommended plugin.

    It is great for theme developers to give two birds with one stone with the WPML config file.

    I did find something when trying to set up a test site. It is only possible to have one version of an language. Like with Chinese and Portuguese. I also was unable to add de_DE_Sie.

    In fact, for languages like Portuguese or Chinese, the predefined list uses the same language code because languages variants share the same ISO 639-1 language code (which is used for the predefined list).

    But you have the possibility to edit the code and enter what you want (2 or 3 characters). The only issue when doing this will be with the detection of the browser preferred language (for the non-standard code).

    I was not aware of WordPress locales using a different format from xx, yyy, xx_XX, yyy_YY. I looked at the official WordPress language repository where Polylang downloads language files when they are available.

    My intention with the validation of the locale format was to help the user, not blocking him. And clearly you demonstrate that this is a bad limitation. I will remove this control in the future version so that it will be possible to use such locale as de_DE_Sie. Thank you for pointing out this issue.
