testing translations

  • jf_trumpet


    Please forgive my ignorance in this subject…just trying to learn more.

    I uploaded BP Translations plugin but when I go to the site, it is only in English (obviously). How can I test my site to see how it functions in other languages?

    BP and WP are utilizing the most current versions.

    Thank you,

    Hi @jf_trumpet,

    the plugin you’re speaking about is intented for load your BuddyPress with translations provided by

    This means that if you’re site is in swedish, the plugin will automatically upload the swedish BP translation. Or similar if you’re site is in italian.

    If you need some multilingual settings you have to use another plugin, like WPML for example.

    More about BuddyPress translation and internalization here.

    Normally you declare the site language from within the wp-config.php file.
    For ex. define (‘WPLANG’, ‘it-IT’);
    If you just want to test ONE other language, simply change this define to another language.

    Be also aware that you can only define one language in wp-config.
