Changing Buddypress into Dutch

    I’ve been making a website with the WP Framework and spend hours trying to change the language the Buddypress displays on the website. Is there anyone who can tell me where I should place the .mo file and get Buddypress to respond to it?

    So far I have put a Buddypress .mo and .po file in wp-content/languages, wp-content/languages, bp-languages and library/languages of WP Framework. My wp-config.php is set to define (‘WPLANG’, ‘nl_NL’);, but my WP is in english.

    you need to create a bp-custom.php and put it in your wp_content plugins directory

    then add this code below into the bp-custom.php
    `
    define( ‘BPLANG’, ‘nl_NL’ );
    if ( file_exists( BP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/bp-languages/buddypress-’ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ ) ) {
    load_textdomain( ‘buddypress’, BP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/bp-languages/buddypress-’ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ );
    }
    `
    now you need to download dutch lang. pack and put it into bp-languages folder located in your buddyperss plugin directory.

    Hi Alan, Thanks for the response. I figured out that Buddypress was using the files .mo / .po. The problem apparently is that some of the elements (words) that should be translated do not exist in the Dutch translation pack. This is probably because the translation is from Feb 2009. They also mention not having translated the entire BP. It does seem weird that there is not a full up to date translation for BP. Maybe someone can tell me where it is?

    Hi,

    It is correct that there is no recent language file of Buddypress. It seems that the dutch developers group is ‘dead’.
    Why should they keep a language file of 2009 online?

    He Chouf1, thanks for the response. Is there also a way to export the content of the first link (glotpress) into a .po file? I’ve already started to translate the .po file myself. But pfffh.. it is no fun on your own. And Jawes you are right, it is verry confusing.

    Thought there is no way to download a po file from glotpress.
    You can only copy/paste from, and yes, that is a long work for a 90% translated file ;-)
    EDIT: false, read here: http://www.werkgroepen.net/wordpress/groups/buddypress-plugins-461604598/
    i recommand that you subscribe here http://wppolyglots.wordpress.com/
    you can also try to contact a member of the dutch WP translation crew…

    Amazing. Thank you. Saved me a day of work. This is really something that should be on the Language Translations page of BP.

    The way to do it in english:
    Log in at http://translate.wordpress.org/projects/buddypress/dev
    Select your language
    At the bottom of the page select ’all current’ as ’.po’ and press ‘export’

    @uloga Great, created the file, changed the language and BAAAM working. But I had to use localization plugin to translate the bp again and re-create .mo.

    hi,
    regarding the multi-language site, i am also building a site in Arabic and i also had the same problem of some of the fields not displaying in Arabic so fixed them by adding those in the po file and they worked. But the problem for me is the links to any URLs in the buddy still points to by English version. How can i make to the version of the language that i am selecting??
    Can anybody help me??
