Translating themes

Although the AliDropship themes and plugin are originally developed in English, we have a special platform for translations using GlotPress – you may translate there and then it will be added on your site.
Please send a ticket to support@alidropship.com if you’re interested, and we’ll create an account for you.

Once we send your account details, please log in and proceed to the section of GlotPress that you’re interested in translating of – AliDropship Plugin, DaVinci, Michelangelo, or Rembrandt themes. Start translating the phrases one by one making sure it’s as complete as possible.

The platform allows you translate the plugin’s and theme’s content by manually adding the translations next to the phrases and words of the theme and  plugin. Choose the language and double click on the field next to the Original string to start translating.

If you aren’t able to find some words or phrases in the theme, please check the plugin and vice versa. If you cannot find it anywhere, please reach out to our support team – our developers will add the missing part shortly. When it’s 100% done, contact our support team as well, so that we add the translation to the next release.

Alternatively, you can add .mo and/or .po language files yourself.

In GlotPress, choose your project and language. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, make sure you have Machine Object Message Catalog (.mo) chosen in the Export section. Also, select what files to export – all current translations or only those matching the filter. Click Export to download the file.

Before uploading the file, make sure it is named correctly.

Here is how theme files should looks like:

DaVinci: ami3-es_ES.mo

Michelangelo: mic-ar.mo

Rembrandt: rem-fr_FR.mo

Here is how plugin files should looks like:

ads-hu_HU.mo

Also, you might want to ensure the file name complies with WP language requirements.

Sign in to your cPanel and go to Files => File Manager => public_html => wp-content => languages. 

Add the file to the right folder – ‘plugins’ or ‘themes’.

Use the Upload button at the top of the page to upload the file.
