How to make your plugin or theme translatable

In our previous post we explained “How to translate plugins and themes“. But what can you do when you’re trying to translate a plugin or theme and can’t find the languages folder?

Step 1. Create locale folder

First of all, you must create the languages folder on the theme or plugin folder (e.g., /oc-content/themes/modern/languages/ for modern theme or /oc-content/google_analyitcs/languages/ for Google Analytics plugin)
Then you must create the locale folder i.e., the language folder with the strings in the original language. By default, Osclass installations are in English (US), as the majority of our plugins and themes. Therefore your plugin/theme locale folder will be named as en_US. Here’s a list of all locale codes.

Step 2. Poedit 

As we mentioned in our previous post, Poedit is our most recommended .po file editor. Download and install it. Run Poedit, create a New File and choose the translation language.
Go to Catalog > Properties and enter the name of your plugin/theme in “Project name”. Remember always to select the UTF-8 format for your files. Then go to the Sources Path tab and enter the folder root of the plugin/theme, where the program will fetch the strings for translating e.g., users/yourname/downloads/google_analytics/. Go to the Sources Keywords tab and introduce the following parameters:

Save the .po file in your locale folder as messages.po for plugins and themes.po for themes. Click on the Update button and the strings will be uploaded (this may take a few seconds). Once you’ve saved the file, Poedit will generate a .mo file, which you will see on your locale folder.

Step 3. Repeat the process 

To translate into other languages, you’ll need to create a new folder with the correspondent locale code. Copy the .po file from the original language folder; open and translate it with Poedit; save the .po file and you will generate a new .mo file with the new translation.

Lastly, compress the plugin/theme folder into .zip format and manually upload it to your oc-admin. Go to your dashboard and click on the “Add new” button on the upper sidebar and you’re good to go!
