Theme translation

All of our themes are fully compatible and optimized for using a powerful WPML plugin for any multilanguage websites and translation tasks http://www.wpml.org . We strongly recommend to use this plugin. 

However, you can translate the theme's PO files using poedit https://poedit.net/

Translation of the theme: 

  1. Go to the theme folder and click on folder "languages" . Here find the file scalia.po. Download it and open this file using poedit application, edit your translations and save it as a scalia-XX_YY .mo / .po. Instead of XX_YY use your language code. You can find the list of language codes here https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/ . As an example, the language code for English is en_EN
  2. Using your FTP, create a folder "themes" inside the folder wp-content / languages and upload the PO file you have translated.  

Translation of the theme's "elements" plugin:

  1. Go to the theme's plugin folder (wp-content / plugins / scalia_elements) and select folder "languages". Here find the file scalia.po. Download it and open this file using poedit application, edit your translations and save it as a scalia-XX_YY .mo / .po. Instead of XX_YY use your language code. You can find the list of language codes here https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/ . As an example, the language code for English is en_EN 
  2. Using your FTP, create a folder "languages" inside the folder wp-content / languagesand upload the PO file you have translated.  

Tell Wordpress what language to use:

You need to make sure your wp-config.php file matches your language files. For example, if you’re using a French translation, you’ll need to add the scalia-fr_FR.po and scalia-fr_FR.mo files to your theme and plugins folder (see above), then set your language in wp-config.php, like this:

define ('WPLANG', 'fr_FR');

By the way, your wp-config.php file is located in the main directory where all your core WordPress files are located.

Save your wp-config.php file, upload it to your WordPress installation, and you are ready to go.
