How can I translate the theme?

The default locale for our themes is en_US. If you want to change a translatable string in the theme without changing the theme locale, you must create a new .po file using the the languages/default.pot file provided in the theme, and name it following the locale convention (e.g. en_US.po for English, etc.).

If you want to localize the theme, you should edit the wp-config.php file and change the WPLANG constant value to something different (e.g. de_DE for German), and create a new .po file in the aforementioned folder as explained above.

If you’re using a translation plugin instead, such as WPML, make sure to always create .po files according to the languages that have been enabled.
