E newsletter Translation

Hey, the newsletter plugin works great.
There are few words, sentences that are predefined. I need to translate some of the words into my language. Where can i find a file in which I could edit the templates?

    Hello szymonfortuna,

    Welcome to WPMU Dev!

    Using FTP, navigate to this folder:
    wp-content/plugins/e-newsletter/email-newsletter-files/languages and download the file email-newsletter.pot

    Download Poedit: http://www.poedit.net/download.php and install it on your system.

    Run Poedit. Go to File > New Catalog from POT File and open email-newsletter.pot
    You will be asked to save the file, save it as per the language you are using. Refer this guide to the the necessary name: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language

    For eg, for Arabic you would use email-newsletter-ar.po (the textdomain is email-newsletter)

    Now from the editor type in your translation. See the screenshot. When you are done save it. A email-newsletter-ar.mo file will be automatically created. (Make sure its checked in the Preferences, see screenshot 2)

    Upload both the files, the .po and .mo file to the languages folder (the same folder as email-newsletter.pot). There you go!

    Let me know how it goes, or if you need more help!
    Have fun :slight_smile:

    Hey that partly helped. One question accoarding the newsletter thoug. If you go to newsletter settings and preview.
    You'll notice "From" at the top and for instance "Not interested anymore? Unsubscribe Instantly."
    Theese sentences are not in translation files, well in fact there was only "Unsubscribe". That's why i need to find the file with templates and make certain changes if you know what i mean.

    By the way do all you products have the pot files to create translations? I was about make a new post but maby we can find answears here.
    I'm planning to have a MU BP site with my few friends from different countries and so I'm trying to find answears on how we can control different languages withing the international network of sites.
    One way is through po,mo files.
    I wanted to give suggestion that maby it's worth to extend capabilities of admin custom text plugin
    so you can literally find any text from plugins themes (no posts and text of course)and easly translate. And that translation maby would be automaticly added to po files...?
    What do you think about this..

    p.s. Great support so far, very clear. I really appriciate it.

    Hello szymonfortuna,

    Thanks for your feedback on the support! My pleasure :slight_smile:

    I will ask the developer, Andrey to help you out here. Editing the source files is not recommended. Maybe this can be added in the next update of the plugin.

    Most of our projects have the translation files along with it as this is a much asked for feature all the time!

    Regarding the feature, it sounds interesting me, lets hear it out from the community. Please go ahead to this forum and post it as a feature request. I will take it from there and hopefully members would vote-up and share their suggestions too. If it gets a little traction, I can submit it to the dev team as a feature request!

    Please make sure you add the request under the appropriate plugin. Looking forward to that!
