10. How to translate the theme

There are 2 methods to translate

10.1 Translate Inside The Theme

This is is the traditional method, and the method most of our users use. The locate the Languages folder, follow this path: wp-content/themes/snssimen/languages

Despite this being the most popular, this method has one downside. Whenever users update the theme and the plugin, the whole Theme folder is replaced with a new and updated folder, which in turn overwrites their translation files.

If you choose to store your language files using this method, remember that the file structure is only the language name. For example, if the language files are in the Deutsch language, the file names would be and en_US.po.

You can translate default po file with POEdit tool. You can see here for more details.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you choose to use this method, don't forget to backup files you don't want to lose before updating snssimen.

10.2 Translate use WPML Plugin

WPML is the most popular plugin for multi language support, Porto is fully compatible with WPML. Below you will find documentation their team created for using WPML plugin with Porto. If you've purchased WPML and have any questions or issues, please check the links below.
