how to translate tabs, I did translate the .po files

I translated the .po file of this theme using Poedit. However the headers for Activity Forums Groups Members Sign Up still show up in English see http://pulsohispano.com/ . I translated the .po file I found under themes/bp-corporate/languages/en_EN.po then I updoaled the file es_ES.mo into the same folder.

I have also changed the wp-config.php file so that the lang is Spanish. So the back end is in Spanish, I also uploaded a .mo file Spanish version of BuddyPress that I got from http://www.bp-es.com/noticias/descargas/

How can I make it so that Activity Forums Groups Members Sign Up show up in Spanish?

Thanks

    Dave:

    Thanks for the reply and the recommendation.

    Now, please explain what each are for:

    1. BuddyPress Spanish Language .mo file

    2. Corporate BP theme language .mo file

    3. buddypress/bp-languages/buddypress.pot

    Don’t you think that #1, should take care of my issue? I obtained the file from http://www.bp-es.com/noticias/descargas/ and placed it in

    /wp-content/plugins/buddypress/bp-languages/

    Why are there three files to change the language? And what parts of the “front end” does each file change?

    I already have a translation of the whole buddy press application. The website you suggested above asks me to do what I already had done. Instead of me manually changing the buddypress/bp-languages/buddypress.pot file I already found and uploaded the Spanish version of BP in to this folder:

    buddypress/bp-languages/buddypress-es_ES.mo

    perhaps what I need to do is change this code?

    Next step is to call the buddypress-mysite.mo file from wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php like so:

    define( ‘BPLANG’, ‘mysite’ );

    if ( file_exists( BP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/bp-languages/buddypress-‘ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ ) ) {

    load_textdomain( ‘buddypress’, BP_PLUGIN_DIR . ‘/bp-languages/buddypress-‘ . BPLANG . ‘.mo’ );

    }

    However, I am unable to find the wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php file in my files?

    HELP please

    Hiya,

    However, I am unable to find the wp-content/plugins/bp-custom.php file in my files?

    If it doesn’t exist you can create the file.

    To completely translate the elements on your site, you will also need to customize the theme’s language file just as done already with BuddyPress and WordPress.

    Thanks!
