I'm developing a theme and curious if strings could be written in a language different from English and still be properly translatable?
What I mean is when using translation functions in a custom theme, e.g.
__e('string','textdomain') can I use language different from English to write the string, for example:
Or do I have to write everything in English and then provide a translation files for other languages (presumably because theme's default language defaults to the WPLANG setting in wp-config.php)?
Hope someone can clarify this.
