    Hello Sandra,

    If you’re just trying to change a few simple things on the frontend of your website, it might be easier for you to avoid WordPress localization and use our string swap plugin:

    Here’s also some more info on how all this works from the development side of things:


    And here’s some more info on how localization works, if you want go to that route:

    Specifically to the theme, there is a file called alyeska.po located in the “lang” folder of the theme. You download that file and translate the contents line by line. This process will be easier to manage if you use a program like poEdit, for example. That way you’ll be able to translate the file with a user-friendly interface and not a text editor. Then you save the file with your language code in the file name (ex: fr_FR.po for French, en_BR.po for British, etc). When you do this, poEdit will also create a second file for you with the same name ending in “.mo”. Then you need to upload these two new files back to “lang” folder of the theme on your live site.

    In order for the above process to work, you need to actually have your WordPress site set to be in your language. You do that by changing the language code in your wp-config.php file (which is found in the root directory or your WordPress installation). Here’s a guide on that process:
