I have one question. I use latest Wordpress and Budypress. I have language files for buddypress - .po and .mo. My question is where I need to put the files, how I need to rename them and is there any function that I need to add somewhere (for example functions.php) to load them. I checked this page and try to follow the instructions, but my site is still in english.

Thank you in advance :)

  • The instructions say to put them in the /wp-content/languages/ folder. Have you done that? – Lea Cohen Jan 27 '13 at 6:21

The naming convention for plugins translation files (.mo and .po files) is pluginname-language_COUNTRY.mo. So, for example, a French translation files of Buddypress will be: buddypress-fr_FR.mo and buddypress-fr_FR.po. After renaming these files, put them in wp-content/languages directory and your translation should work. Note that WP_LANG must be defined with the same language (fr_FR for example) for the translation files to load.
