How to Translate a WPZOOM Theme using TranslatePress
1. Change the Language of your WordPress Site
Do you want to change some strings in English (i.e: Read More, Designed by)? Then jump to step #3
All WPZOOM themes are internationalized (?) which means that you can easily translate them in any language you want.
In order to translate a WordPress theme in a different language, you have to change the language of your WordPress site to the same language in which you plan to translate the theme.
In our case we’ll translate the theme to Romanian (ro_RO), so in the General Settings page I’ll select Română option for Site Language.
2. Download and Install TranslatePress Plugin
Every WPZOOM Theme comes with a .pot file that contains all of the text to be translated.
There are different tools that you can use to translate a theme, but our favorite is the TranslatePress plugin, which is very easy to use. Go ahead and install the plugin and after that make sure to activate it.
3. Add a New Language or Translate
Once you have the plugin activated, navigate to the Settings > TranslatePress menu in the Dashboard or by clicking the Translate Site link in the admin bar at the top.
From the Settings page you can easily configure your site to be multilingual or you can just translate the theme in the needed language. In this case you’ll need to set translated language as Default Language.
Similar to Customizer, the plugin will open a new window where you can click on the text to translate it.
You can repeat this process for all strings from your theme that you need to translate.
