Hello, I recently bought wp theme newscast and I’m making my website in Spanish. Apparently the theme is language support, but can not find the files .po or po. I have read in the forum that you have any of those files. Could you send me for Spanish language. Thank you very much. firstname.lastname@example.org
I saw the link “You’ll find a tutorial here: http://codex.wordpress.org/User:Skippy/Creating_POT_Files” but I can not do it properly
thank you very muchAugust 28, 2010 at 3:31 pm #33215
The language files can be found here: http://www.mediafire.com/?0yi8z4njnrlceka
Please unzip the files and afterwards open the .po file with Poedit (http://www.poedit.net/download.php) and translate it. Save the translated file under following name “you-language-shortcut”.po . Assuming you come from Sweden (because of the domain name :-) ) save it under: sv_SE.po
A list of shortcuts can be found here: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language
At least you save/upload the generated .po and .mo files in your themes folder.

I am also struggling with this. The .po file you pointed to apparently only has a very small list of words. How can I translate the entire front end.
Example: I want to change the name of “Archive” “Categories” and “Pages” on the front page.
Thanks.September 1, 2010 at 12:26 pm #33217
Sorry these things are hardcoded, so these words (strings) can’t be translated via .po files. It would be possible to use the php e_ function to translate them but as long as Kriesi doesn’t decide to use the php_e function for these words I can’t provide a .po file which translates everything. You need to edit things manually which is of course a bit of work.
I.e. to change the word “categories” you need to open sidebar.php and replace

hast something changed? I find some mo an po files by default in the languages folder, so I cannot follow these steps anymore.
How do I have to name the files now, or which files do I have to edit at all?
Are there some special theme mo and poes now?

I tried uploading the files in the main theme folder like described here: http://www.kriesi.at/support/topic/newscast-translation#post-25617
The outcome was, that some translations worked (like “Leave a reply” below a post) and others did not (like the labeling of the contact form)
In the sentence theme this worked pretty well, but here everything seems to be a bit outdated, huh?
Hope you can help.

Yes, of course ;-) (Not just know, because I did not like the result, so I switched back)
Shall I download the language files, like I did and as mentioned above, or use the others, that are already in the languages folder?

Tbh I couldn’t find any language files in my Newscast folder. Here’s the file I’ve created today: http://www.mediafire.com/?v4mn5xi115zf419 by using the latest Newscast version.
PeterAugust 2, 2012 at 10:33 am #33224
my mistake. I thought I need to put them into wp-content/languages.
Now everything is ok. Sorry.

I’m having the same problem as Boris. I did download the latest file you created and translated it. I put the files in:
Is that correct? Or should I put them somewhere else?

No, afaik Newscast doesn’t require a lang folder. Upload the files into the main theme folder (where style.css is located) instead.
