    I need to translate my enfold theme to portuguese, not the builder or anything like that, only some words that the viewers will have to deal with, like: ” search”, “posted by”, ” leave a reply”, things like that.

    I´ve being reading the support forum, but I cannot find a way to do that. I´ve tryed a few plugins that some of you recomended: Code Localization, (this one seams nice, but even after I edited the .mo files I do not know what to do with it.

    The other one, WPML, is a paid multilanguage, not what I need.

    Can you help me? Is there a tutorial that we can watch or a step by step tutorial?

    Thank you.



    Please use Codestyling: to translate the missing text strings. Install the plugin, go to Tools > Localization and select “Themes”. Then search for “Enfold” in the list and click on “Add new language”. Then select PT_BR from the list and click the “create po-file” button. Click on “Rescan” to fetch all text strings. Then click on “Edit” and translate the required strings from the “avia_framework” textdomain. At least click the “create mo file” button next to the “Textdomain” selection dropdown (top left corner).


    Hi Dude,

    Thank you for you response. I´ve already did all this up to create the .mo file, but still not working. Do I have to copy this file and upload by ftp? If so, where do I copy this file from?

    How do I make pt-br my first language for the theme? I´ve seen that the theme already comes with the German tranlation, so the question is how to choose the enfond language?

    I´ve posted some screenshots of what I did in the following page:

    Thank you again.



    1) No, normally not. But you can check if the file is located in the right folder. Go to wp-content/themes/enfold/lang/ and make sure that pt_BR.po and are inside this folder.

    2) How do I make pt-br my first language for the theme? – You must set the wordpress language to pt_br. This can be done by setting the WPLANG constant in wp-config.php:

    You can find all supported languages here:



    My wordpress was already in Portuguese.

    Thank you for trying to help me, but I only managed to do the translation using poedit and uploading the file by FTP, I still not nowing why the Codelocalization pluging did not work. Anyway, maybe poedit is the best way.

    Matter resolved.

    Best regards,
