Translation Files

Do you want FAQ-Tastic to appear in your language? Thankfully, FAQ-Tastic was built so that it could be translated. Below are some files that will help you to change the default English version into your native language and a quick guide on how you can change the default locale of the plugin.

Overview: Translating FAQ-Tastic

To translate WordPress and any themes or plugins, you must ensure that you have correctly set up your language in the wp-config.php file (this can be found in root of your WordPress installation).

Inside the wp-config.php you will need to make sure that the language function has been set to your language using the appropriate language code.

For example:

define ('WPLANG', 'bg_BG');  (for Bulgarian)
define ('WPLANG', 'id_ID');  (for Indonesian)

How To Change FAQ-Tastic To Your Language

  1. Download the *.mo localisation file you require from the list below.
  2. Check that the filename of the *.mo file fits the country code you have set in your wp-config.php file.
    (e.g. "bg_BG.mo" for Bulgarian or "es_ES.mo" for Español/España or "es_MX.mo" for Español/México)
  3. Upload the *.mo file to the /wp-content/plugins/faq-tastic/locale/ folder.
  4. Go back to FAQ-Tastic and the plugin should now be translated!

Translation Problems?

If your plugin does not seem to be translating properly, check that the filename is correct. Check your wp-config.php file to ensure that the filename matches exactly.

Please let me know if these files are correct or require updating. It's useful knowing as I can't speak any of these languages!

Help Translate FAQ-Tastic & Get Upgraded To Pro

If you are a translator and would like to help with the FAQ-Tastic project, then please contact me at: translations[at]faq-tastic.com (replace [at] with @).

In return for helping with translating the FAQ-Tastic plugin, I will upgrade you to FAQ-Tastic Pro as a way of saying "Thanks". After all, you'll need to check the localisation strings in this version too!

How Can You Help Translate?

A quick and easy way to translate FAQ-Tastic (and WordPress or any WordPress theme or plugin) is to use the CodeStyling Localization plugin for WordPress (or download the CodeStyling Localization plugin from the WordPress plugin repository. Note: Thanks to Michael Marx for this suggestion!). This plugin will help to scan the FAQ-Tastic folder and generate the require *.PO and *.MO files for translation.

If you would like to help and be upgraded to the FAQ-Tastic Pro membership, then here's how you can do that:

  1. Use the WP2.8  "Add New" link under the "Plugins" section of the navigation.
  2. Search for "CodeStyling Localization".
  3. Install the plugin.
  4. Activate the plugin.
  5. Follow the instructions from the CodeStyling Localization website.
  6. FTP into your WordPress site and download the PO and MO files for FAQ-Tastic.
  7. Email me at translations[at]faq-tastic.com with both the PO and MO files.
    Note: Please let me know the following:

    1. The language of your files.
    2. The country code (e.g. "en_GB").
    3. Your desired name (which I list above).
    4. Any URL you'd like me to add to the list.
  8. After checking the files, I will upgrade you to the FAQ-Tastic Pro membership level.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide with Translations!
