Multi Vendor Marketplace Plugin | WCFM Marketplace › Forums › WCFM – Ultimate › Adding new translation file
- February 4, 2020 at 3:58 pm #105374
I’ve seen that this questions have been asked before but topic had always closed before a solution :O
I translated WCFM – Frontend manager and WCFM – Frontend manager Ultimate to Estonian language (as is my website)
I did translation using Poedit targeting: wc-frontend-manager.pot and wc-frontend-manager-ultimate.pot files.
I ended up with following files of translation for each plugin:
Location of these files are:
The only setting i could find for setting a language is at WordPress Admin -> Settings -> General -> Language
which is set to estonian.
My website is in production and hosted locally.
Is there any additional setting for Frontend manager to accept my translations or do i have my translation files with wrong name or in a wrong directory?
Let’s solve this issue once and for all 😀 !

I have the same problem in Greek language. Lang folder in server completed for wc-frontend-manager.pot and wc-frontend-manager-ultimate.pot with .po Is there needed and the .mo files and what I can do for .mo? Greek Language settesd also for wordpress. Nothing happened. The list of strings for translation is very big.
I need for my userw (vendors) the translation of almost all strings that they will see.
I thought to change *_us_US files or .pot files to transleted but I did not doing nothing because I dont know what will happens (if any will be happened).

Hi, Morakisv Ang
I think i can help you with your question about .mo files.
.po Is there needed and the .mo files and what I can do for .mo?
To get corresponding .mo and .po files i used third-party software for windows called “Poedit” you can find a free version that works fine for you here: poedit.net just download and install. Run the program and do “open new” target your [wordpress folder]wp-content/plugins/wc-frontend-manager-ultimate/lang/ and choose file that has “.pot” extension. If you do so, poedit will ask for destination language, choose your favorite 🙂
The list of strings for translation is very big.
Yes indeed, great work will give you great reward, it took me to translate both plugins about 3 days.
If you do translate all of the entries and save the project it should save with file ending with “el_GR” in your case. And in theory frontend manager should accept the translation file instantly and well That’s where i have a problem.
If i find an elegant solution to it i will update this post.

Alright i found solution to my own issue. WCFMu is using WordPress native language setting and WordPress is nativly expecting Estonian language files as “-et” not “-et_EE”. Changing filenames solved my issue.
Important notice doe! Updating WCFM deleted my custom translation files. Thank god i had backups! Always have backups of your stuff guys!
Is there a way to prevent the update from deleting translation files / rewriting the entire translation directory? Or should i make an external plugin that checks existance of certain files in directories and if missing copies them from it’s own storage/backups?

Thanks Joonas Kolostov and WCFM Forum for your help! The problem translating and install the files is solved by loco plugin and poedit.
Have a nice day!
