CoursePress Pro & Membership 2 Pro installing Dutch Translations

Dear people of WPMUDEV,

I see that there are partly translated Dutch translation files for both Membership 2 Pro and CoursePress Pro. How do I install these best on my website and how can I quickly add some translations (additional translated strings) to these partial translations? Many thanks!

I am asking because I've found that sometimes plug ins use a different file name location & naming convention, like bbPress which took me some time to figure out digging through bbpress Q&A's via Google.

Many thanks for your help!

Cheers.

    Hello Sandra,

    I hope you're having a nice day and thank you for your question!

    You'll find translation files for these plugins here:

    Membership 2 Pro - https://premium.wpmudev.org/translate/projects/membership2

    CoursePress - https://premium.wpmudev.org/translate/projects/cp

    To add them to your site:

    - click on a language that you want to download translation for (on these pages that I shared above)
    - scroll the page all the way down
    - there's a form at the bottom that will let you export files
    - export both .po and .mo files and upload them to the /wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder on your server; there's no need to make any changes to file names as these files are ready to use;

    How to add missing translations?

    All our plugins initially come in English and translations are "community powered". On the translation pages (see the same links that I shared above), after you select a language, you'll see all the text from the plugin, both translated and untranslated. For those that still require translation, you'll see "Double click to add" message in "Translation" column so it would be best if you could add them there so community could benefit.

    Note please: it would be great if you could do it this way but those translations might be available with a little delay as they must be approved and you would also need to export translation files again.

    To add translations fast, for your own needs, I'd recommend using PoEdit: https://poedit.net/.

    Once you download translation files, you can open them in this app and add missing translations or edit existing ones. After saving them you simply upload the translation files to /wp-content/languages/plugins folder, just like explained previously.

    I hope that helps :slight_smile:

    Best regards,
    Adam
