I am running a standard WP install at version 3.8.1. I am at the finishing touches of the project and wanted to switch languages from english to german. I've downloaded the localization files from
afterwards i've placed the mo files into
wp-content/languages/and activated alongside
de_DE in the
wp-config.phpfile. Everything works and all strings are shown localized properly.
My only problem is if i log into the backend the dashboard shows a new update to Wordpress 3.8.1, the version i am already running happily for weeks. ;) Is the reason for that behaviour that the localization files are from december 2013 and the 3.8.1 wp install from january 2014? And is it save to "reininstall" version 3.8.1 again over the existing version 3.8.1 . thought so far that the localization files are more or less independent from the core wp files. thanks r.
