How to Translate PublishPress Add-ons

PublishPress extensions are packaged in the same way as normal WordPress plugins and use the default WordPress translation system. WordPress uses the .pot file format for translations.

For example, you can translate the Reminders add-on using the /wp-content/plugins/publishpress-reminders/languages/publishpress-reminders.pot file.

If you’re looking for a tool to make translations easier, we recommend PoEdit. Find out more in this guide to translating the PublishPress core.

We recommend placing your translations in the /wp-content/languages/ folder so they are not deleted by plugin or add-on updates.

So, your translated versions of the Reminders file should be stored here:

  • /wp-content/languages/publishpress-reminders.po
  • /wp-content/languages/publishpress-reminders.mo
