So there's a website I'm working on and I need to change language to spanish. I downloaded and uploaded proper .mo and .po files and added the following value to my wp-config file:

define ('WPLANG', 'es_ES');

I've done this several times before and it's the first time it won't work. Maybe it's an issue with this Wordpress version?


You can set the language through your admin panel, go to 'Settings' > 'General', Scroll down and you will find an option for choosing the language.

This is a user friendly option to change the language.

    The constant in wp-config.php is deprecated, you can kill this. – bueltge May 8 '15 at 6:09
