    I have recently installed WP version 4.4 with German Language.
    Afterwards I installed and activated the Evolve+ theme. I had expected that evolve+ by default would use, as part of the activation, the language as specified in the web page settings, which is set to “Deutsch” (German).
    However this is not the case. Evolve+ is using english. E.g. see the “Read more” button.
    Can you please give me a hint on how to activate the german language for this theme.
    Thanks, Lennart

    PS. The Website is -> eintracht.sund.ch

    Hi,

    You need to use this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/loco-translate/ to translate the strings.

    If it’s a shortcode, you need to translate the strings in t4press core plugin.

    Thanks!

    Hi Denzel,
    Thanks for the quick reply. However I am not planning to do any translation myself. I just want that the Evolve+ theme use the german language files that are delivered with the theme itself.

    Thanks

    Hi Denzel,
    The issue is with the translation.

    index.php line 179:
    “><?php _e(‘Read More’, ‘evolve’); ?>

    Translation is missing for ‘Read More’ (uppercase “M”) in the de_DE.po file.
    A translation exist for ‘Read more’ (lowercase “m”) in the de_DE.po file.

    Since I am not familiar with loco translate, I fixed this by changing ‘Read More’ to ‘Read more’ (lowercase “m”) in the index.php file. I would prefer that this gets corected in the theme itself in the future so that I don’t have to edit the index.php file myself, which is not the right thing to do.

    Thanks, Lennart
