MDW WordPress Tutorial Loco Translate

Loco translate

Written by Michał Krawczyk ,

  1. Go to the Plugins/Add New and find "Loco Translate".
    Loco Translate plugin - WordPress view
  2. Install and activate the plugin.
  3. Now, navigate to the Themes. That's where you'll be able to start translating your website.
  4. Loco translate - lociation in WordPress sidenav
  5. Now click on the name of the theme you want to translate - in this case - MDW.
  6. Since you have not created any language translation so far in your theme, you won't find any language. Therefore, click New language. You can add as many languages as you want.
  7. Choose your WordPress language and select a location - we recommend to use the Author location. Then click Start translating.
  8. Loco translate - configuration
  9. Now in the Source text, you will see the list of the words and phrases which can be translated. Select any label and make a translation in the Polish translation area. The label and flag of the language you've chosen will be displayed here (instead of "Polish"). I've chosen translation into polish, therefore in the image below you see "Polish translation" label.
  10. Loco Translate - source text
  11. Whenever you edit any item, it will be marked with the star icon. You may translate as many words or phrases as you want, but always remember to click Save and Sync button, otherwise, your website won't be translated.
  12. Next important step is to choose the translated language in the WordPress settings. Go to the Settings/General and find Site language on the bottom of the website. Choose your language and press Save Changes. Now your website is available in your language.
