Translating Theme

 

We provide a source translation file for you to translate the theme into your own language. The translation file evolve.pot can be found in the /languages folder inside the theme's package.

 

Free Version

 

In order to help us to translate the free version of the theme, please visit the official translation page on the wordpress.org where you can see, if the theme has been translated into your language, in how many percents etc. If you wish to help to translate, click on the desired percent number of the respective language.

Premium Version

 

To translate the premium version of theme into your language, run through the following steps. As we will be translating directly in the admin area, we will use plugin for the purpose. In our example below, we use the Loco Translate plugin, one of the most popular. Once you install and activate the plugin, navigate to Loco Translate   Themes and click on the theme name - 3.

On the next page will be displayed a list of the available translations packed in the theme's /languages folder. If your language is not in the list yet, click on the New language link and follow the steps to create it.

 

New Language

 

Select the appropiate language - 1, choose to create the translation file in the theme languages folder - 2 and hit the Start translating button - 3 to finish the process.

 

Create Language

 

If your language is already included in the list, move over the language row to display the manage links and click the Edit link to start translation.

 

Edit Language

 

On the translation editor first click on the Sync button to make sure all the translation strings are up to date - 1. Then you can start to translate by clicking on the items - 2 and adding your translation strings in the text field - 3.

On the end of the translation process remember to hit the Save button to save the work.

 

Save Translation

 

NOTE: As we often update the premium version of the theme with new strings, you can lose your translation if you don't back up the current version and rewrite the language files with new theme version. In this case, please send us the actual language files - *.po and *.mo - which you can download directly in the editor and we will include them in the theme's package.
