Using the theme translations together with WMPL

The IonMag Theme is now compatible with the most popular multilingual plugin, WPML. This means that all our customers have the power to go beyond the language limitation. Reach more people, touch more cultures, as you can write content and translate it into different languages!

You can gain access to the advanced translation management features and a professional content translation interface. The new compatibility will help you develop even more innovative websites without requiring any technical or coding skills.

To use WPML with IonMag, you will need to download the .po and .mo files from here.

You will recognize the file corresponding to your language by checking the WordPress translation teams.

The theme will only translate the theme elements to the new language. The content itself must be created separately for each language in particular.

How does this work?

Let’s add the Danish language to the website:

  • Download the translation .po and .mo files and extract the  translation.zip on your device
  • Check the WordPress Translation Teams section to identify the corresponding language file:

danish_language

  • Copy the da_Dk.po and da_Dk.mo from the translation folder downloaded earlier and paste it into your theme files on the server:

As an alternative, you can copy all of the .po and .mo files on your server without sorting them out. All the files have 2MB.

Congrats! You have installed WPML plugin on your website! Now, you can adjust the plugin settings using the step by step WPML guide. We highly recommend you to access the official WPML documentation for the configuration setup.
