Word By Word Translation

This post will help you resolve the troubles with changing text.

Example: If you don’t like:

  • Use text “BOOKING NOW” and you like “BOOKING”
  • Or “HOTEL” service to other service (“RESORT”)..

Firstly, navigate to Settings -> General -> Site language, choose your language. Let’s take Chinese as an example in this instruction.

Secondly, visit site and press Ctrl + U to see letters representing language. In the picture below, zh-CN represents Simplified Chinese.

Thirdly, navigate to the folder of the theme (wp-content/themes//) and in the folder languages/ (of the theme) you will find file file traveler.po and traveler.mo are default language files that we provide for you to customize in your language..

Please try doing following steps:
1. Rename traveler.po and traveler.mo as language corresponding with your website ( For example, zh_CN.po/ zh_CN.mo. Note: you need to use “_” instead of “-” like in picture above )
2. Change some information to activate language file, please look at this image.

Next, open file zh_CN.po with POedit to set up this language file. In taskbar, choose Catalog > Properties

In Language, you choose target language or enter letters representing it.

Click OK to finish.

Now you will see a list of words that you have to translate.

Choose a word then enter its translation in translation box.

After finish translating, click Save or Ctrl + S to save translation. Data in file .po will be automatically updated in file .mo
