How You Can Translate WP ERP in Your Own Language
Make sure to follow the below steps. Here in this tutorial, we will be using the free Poedit software to translate WP ERP. Not only the tool, Poedit is free but also compatible with any operating systems like OSX Catalina, Ubuntu and Windows 10.
Step 1: Install Poedit
Next up, you need to install Poedit on your computer. You can use any plugin as an alternative to the Poedit.
Step 2: Download WP ERP Plugin
Go to WordPress.org to download the zip file of WP ERP. Now, unzip the file and find the translation file from this location: inside “/wp-erp/i18n/languages/”. Next up, click on the wp-erp.pot file to open it in the editor.
Step 3: Start Translating
Select the “Plugin.pot” file.
Select your desired language from the dropdown menu.
Now is the time to create a translation on your desired language.
Step 4: Save the Translated File
Now, while saving the file, please keep in mind that it has to follow a specific naming format. Like- for Bengali, I have named the files as erp-bn_BD.po and erp-bn_BD.mo.
Step 5: Compile .mo File
Now, if you are using Mac, then you can go to the File > Compile to the .mo file.
Voila! You made it! Now, you have completed all the processes needed to translate the WP ERP Core file.
Interestingly, the .po file will automatically be generated too!
Please note that, if you are trying to translate the plugin to French, then the file name should be
erp-fr_fr.poTo know about your language code you can refer to https://translate.wordpress.org/
Step 6: Place the File in the Appropriate Location
Now, that you have translated and generated the two files, you now need to place these two files inside this location:
/wp-content/plugins/erp/i18n/languages folder or
Step 7: Change the Site Language
Now, navigate to the WP Admin Dashboard > Settings > General > Site language. Now, choose your desired language (In this case, we have selected Bengali). Finally, hit the save button.
If you have changed your site language from WordPress settings and placed the language file in the appropriate location, then you are done. Now just refresh any of the pages and the translations will start working.
