How do I change the language of the Jobs and Experts Plugin?

    Hey Kenneth,

    Hope you're doing well today!

    You can change the language by adding in the language file for the language you wish to change it too.

    We do have a community translation section here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/translate/projects/jbp

    You can see some languages are already 100% translated and ready to go. Which language are you wanting?

    If it's one of the 100% ones then all you need to do is click on it and download the .mo file then upload it to:

    /wp-content/languages/plugins

    If the languages and/or plugins folder doesn't exist there then you can just create it :slight_smile:

    Once you have the .mo file there then when you change the language of your WP installation via general settings it will also change the language of that plugin since it will recognize the needed language file.

    You will notice you can also download a .po language file as well, that's the human readable form whereas the .mo is the machine readable form, the one WP actually uses. You can still download the .po as well and keep it with the .mo just for organization sake and in-case you ever need to edit it.

    We have a great post on translating plugins if you want to become more familiar with it: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/how-to-translate-a-wordpress-plugin/

    Hope that helps and let us know if you have any further questions on this :slight_smile:

    All the best,
    Tyler
