I developed a plugin for my client in english by default. I created estonian and russian translation files. But my client installed wordpress with estonian language by default and now, when my plugin is activated it doesn't use estonian translation file, because I guess wordpress uses estonian language by default. Russian language works well.
Client uses qtranslate-x plugin for translations. What should I do to solve this problem?

  • Please elaborate on how translations are set up in your plugin. Logically if estonian language files are properly set up then that's exactly what estonian install of WP should use.

  • My plugin's text domain is "kvkoolitus". Both translation files named like this: kvkoolitus-et_EE.mo and kvkoolitus-ru_RU.mo. If russian is selected, plugin displays russian words, but when I switch back to estonian - I see only english words.

1 Answer 1


I am not confident without downloading Estonian copy of WP source, but from look at GlotPress it seems that locale code for it is simply et, not et_EE.
