Language and Localization

You can translate WP Carousel easily using Poedit App.

Download Poedit

There are several apps available to help you with translating.PO files. PoEdit is a popular one of them, and it’s available on every major platform. You can download it from here.

Start Translating

Open the default wp-carousel.pot file from your /wp-content/plugins/wp-carousel-free/languages/ folder. When you save your work, PoEdit will generate a .MO file which will be needed to apply for your work.

Name your files properly WordPress recognizes your localization by special formatting of file names. You will need to include the right language and country codes so it can identify what language your work is made for.

For example, a German localization would have the file names: wp-carousel-de_DE.po and wp-carousel-de_DE.mo. You must follow this syntax, including the dash, underscore, and lower or uppercase letters.

Apply Your Localization

Copy your newly created.PO and.MO files into the /wp-content/plugins/wp-carousel-free/languages/ folder. WordPress should use them immediately if you named your files properly.
