Some strings might still be in English in some of your pages and you might be wondering how to solve this. In some case, the translations you’re looking for might be contained in the following plugins:
- Grimlock for BuddyPress
- Grimlock for bbPress
- Grimlock Login
They each contain a POT file that can be translated using Poedit under the languages directory. For instance, Grimlock contains:
Usually, we recommend to rename both translated files
grimlock-your-language-code.po. Then, please replace from the file name by the language code of your choice, for instance
fr_FR for french.
Finally, the best practice is to move the files in the plugins languages directory of your whole website:
wp-content/languages/plugins directory. There, you will find the translation for other plugins.
This will also ensure that the files will not be lost during any future update.
