(I modified the question. i .e. I added hyperlink)

My website uses Jobroller theme.

The problem is that it is not compatible with WPML

I am translating themes using codestyling localization [Link to the code. It is compressed][1] Could you give me some instructions on what I need to do from here?

Jobroller does not seem to be compatible with codestyling localization.

If I am using an incompatible them, is there a way to achieve compatibility?

( I have added some of the source codes)

Please add a link to the theme code. – toscho May 24 '13 at 10:04
It's called the Jobroller. I got it some time ago demos.appthemes.com/?theme=jobroller – user45979 May 27 '13 at 7:04
That’s not the code, it is the rendered output. There is no answer possible without seeing how the code loads and uses the language. – toscho May 27 '13 at 7:32
Jobroller is 'open source' but not free. I know this sounds strange but I am not too sure how else to put it. I don't think I can just upload the codes. – user45979 May 27 '13 at 12:20
Then ask the theme support. – toscho May 27 '13 at 12:36

I haven’t seen all files in your attachment, some directories are not included, so this is just a guess:

  1. Create a directory languages in the theme for the language files.

  2. Add the following to the style.css header below License URI:

     Textdomain:  jobroller
     Domain Path: /languages
  3. In functions.php add:

    add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'jobroller_load_language' );
    function jobroller_load_language()
            get_template_directory() . '/languages'

Thank you. It didn't work, it must be the problem with the theme. Jobroller is not compatible with WPML either and a bridge hasn't been published yet. Thank you so much anyway – user45979 May 27 '13 at 13:30

If you’re interested in a tool to easily translate WordPress themes, have a look at the online localization platform https://poeditor.com/ It’s even got a plug-in you can use with it to integrate its API to your WordPress so that you save more time with the file management process. You can find it here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/poeditor/
