Translation to Russian, Poedit

Is it possible to translate Q&A plugin?
I have found "qa.po" file here: wp-content/plugins/qa/languages

I have done the translation, but my question section is still in English.

I saw Russian version here: https://premium.wpmudev.org/translate/projects/qa-wordpress-questions-and-answers-plugin/ru/default
When I am trying to import my version , I don't know why, I cant replace this ugly translation with mine.

Maybe there should be any other corrections? Thanks!

    Hi there @Ruslan,

    Hope you're well today and thanks for your question, here are the steps for translating the plugin :slight_smile:

    1. First you'll need to download and install Poedit. You can get it here: http://www.poedit.net/

    2. Download Q&A and unzip the file. Take a look in the languages folder. You'll see a *.po file. This is the language template file provided by the plugin developer to allow it to be translated by Wordpress

    3. Run Poedit, and open up that .po file. You will see the list of every text that is included with the plugin.

    4. Go through the list, and for each time you wish to change something, first click it in the list. You will see the "Source text" box update. Now just enter what you wish to be included instead of that text in the translation box.

    It's a long list, so to quickly find instances of "question" be sure to use the "find" function (cmd+F on Mac, and ctrl+F on PC)

    5. When you're done translating, click "Validate" to make sure there aren't any errors.

    6. Now save the file. This will automatically create a .mo file. This is the compiled version of your translation that Wordpress can read faster than the full text version.

    7. Rename the .mo file to include the country code. For example, with Q&A it would be "qa-en_US.mo" Except replace the en_US part with whatever language code you need. You can find references to the codes here: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language

    8. Upload to your site and place in the languages folder of Q&A (wp-content/plugins/qa/languages)

    9. Tell Wordpress to look for translations. This can be done by placing the following line in your wp-config.php file:

    define('WPLANG', 'en_US');

    As you did before when renaming the file, replace the en_US part with whatever language code you need. You can find references to the codes here: http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language

    Thank you!

    Kind Regards
    Jack.
