Simple:Press Version 5.5.1 – Installing Translations

update-newsOne of the recurring questions we get asked is how to install language translation files (‘mo’ gettext files for the technically minded) into Simple:Press. And of course, because we only get asked this question by users whose English is their second language – if they can speak it at all – then sometimes the discussion can get a bit confusing. Add into the mix the many non-standard WordPress language settings that seem to be out there in the wild, then things can clearly get frustrating.

To try and alleviate some of those frustrations, the next major update to Simple:Press will introduce a new admin panel that will allow the user to simply click a button to install the language files they need – provided, of course, that translations exist in the first place.

Because Simple:Press breaks down into the core, admin, plugins and themes – there can be several language files that need to be downloaded and installed and the new downloader/installer aims to make that whole task easy and quick to manage. What’s more, you will be able to update the language files on demand for all active components so that future additions and changes to Simple:Press can have their translations quickly bought up to date.

As long, of course, that the necessary translations have been made!
