      Tags: theme translation   

      Hi! I’m a Barcelona based translator and I’m totally new here.

      Recently I’ve started a WP.com blog for my son’s school and have soon realized that although the essentials of the chosen theme (Coraline) have been translated into Catalan, there are still many things that have not. Since the parents whom this blog targets speak mostly Catalan or Spanish, I was wondering if I could contribute to the full translation of the theme and its widgets.

      I’m a professional translator into Russian (my mother tongue) proficient in Catalan so I feel I could do the job. Also one of our school blog contributors is a native Catalan corrector, so she could oversee the project linguistically.

      What I need now is to understand a few tech things. How do I actually translate a theme or a widget? Where should I start? Is it at all possible??? 😉

      Thanks all of you for help.
      Warm regards from nearby Barcelona,

        Hello everyone,
        I’d like to both offer my help and ask for help…
        I’m trying to localize Dealicious (a premium theme by the WPdeals team)
        I’ve translated the po file with poedit, edited wp-config.php file and uploaded both the MO and the po files to wp-content/languages.
        My website is still in English 🙁
        Could someone please help me?
        I’d also like to translate WPdeals into Italian. Is anyone already working on that? If yes, can I help? If not, can someone help me out on the technical side of things?

          This is not the correct place for these kinds of requests.

          This site is dedicated to the translation of the core of WordPress and related projects (such as bbPress or BuddyPress). From the sound of it, it seems that what you need is to visit to support forum and ask there. Come to think of it, you might even consider starting by asking the developers of those themes for support.

            I was also offering help in the translation of a free plugin, that’s why I thought it might have been the right place:)
            Ok, though, I’ll try the support forum. I’ve already tried asking the developers but they aren’t feeling very chatty 😉 I’ve been waiting a few days now…
            Thanks anyway
