Is there any clean way (not overwriting wp-includes\js\thickbox\thickbox.js file) to translate english next/ prev/ image # of # and Close tooltip in Wordpress native Thickbox script?

Localize Wordpress or write and load special localization for your language specialy for thickbox. Thickbox dialogs support localization provided by WP

Update - Let's Check

1. You have uncomented string <code>define('WPLANG', 'pl_PL');</code> in your wp-config.php
2. You have localization files in wp-content/languages/

  • Hi! I have installed polish version of Wordpress and have translated words like "Next" in pl_PL.po / pl_PL.mo located in "languages" folder. What else I can do? – cachaito Nov 14 '12 at 22:42
  • as far as i see polan translation (provided by pl.wordpress.org) already contain translation for thickbox. its should work in wp-admin now with dali/poperednie/obraz words... can you confirm it? – Oleg Butuzov Nov 14 '12 at 23:10
  • Sorry I can't understand last sentence (its should work in wp-admin now with dali/poperednie/obraz words...) – cachaito Nov 14 '12 at 23:27
  • Thickbox should be localized in polish if you using Polish wordpress (with localization files and anabed WPLANG in wp-config) – Oleg Butuzov Nov 15 '12 at 5:25
  • I have 'WPLANG', 'pl_PL' in wp-config and polish language in whole WP except Thickbox... By the way, to call Thickbox I'm using a WP Thickbox Integration Plugin but it uses native thickbox.js – cachaito Nov 15 '12 at 9:58

I got it now. Newest WordPress version has translated Thickbox version! Thank You Code Monkey for help!

Anyway I still wonder why in version 3.3.1 the translation doesn't work (I've checked pl_PL.po file in wp-content\languages and there is translation pointing to script-loader.php where actually are strings from Thickbox for translation! :-/
