Translating WP-e-Commerce is now easy
Note: This post is about WP e-Commerce 3.8 and the methods described in it will not work for 3.7
I’m happy to announce, that WP-e-Commerce translations page is now up and running. Check it out: http://languages.getshopped.org/. The page is powered by GlotPress, the same software, that WordPress uses to do their translations.
This is how the front page looks.
You can log in with your GetShopped account (if you don’t have one – get it here). Logged in users can suggest translations and download translation files. Once you are logged in – click on the WP e-Commerce project and you will get a list of languages:
Select the one that you need (if your language is not in the list – let us know in comments, we will add it) and then you will see the translations:
The is a Link to download the translations on the bottom left corner of the page. You will get a PO file. To use it on your WP e-Commerce site you will need to rename it to wpsc-xx_XX.PO (where xx_XX is your language code) and compile it to MO file. It is easy to do that with PO Edit, just open PO file and click Save. The MO file will be created in the same directory. Put MO file in your WP e-Commerce wpsc-languages folder and you will be ready to go, but don’t forget that your WordPress language is set in wp-config file. You can find more information on the codex page.
