    You can translate WP RESIDENCE WordPress theme in any language with POEdit. To use this module follow these steps:

    1. Download and install POEdit.

    2. Open with POedit the wpresidence.po file located in languages folder.

    With POedit open the file wpresidence.po located in languages folder.

    * For those that have language files they need to download those on their computers and  make edits on those.

    3. Translate the file using POedit.

    4. Save the file with the proper name (for example en_US.po). If the file name is not right the translation will not work. See this link for the proper name http://wpcentral.io/internationalization/.

    6. Install WordPress in your language – http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language (if it’s not English – default language)

    7. After all those steps go in Admin – General Settings and you should see a dropdown with Languages.

    This is where you will find the languages available based on the language code you translated – http://wpcentral.io/internationalization/ . Select your language that matches the .po name and that should be all.
