With POEditor’s localization plugin for WordPress, you can manage your WordPress language files between POEditor and WP, from within your WP dashboard. Download and install the POEditor WordPress translation plugin according to the instructions in the Installation tab. Then follow this step by step guide to set up your localization workflow.
How to manage the WordPress localization workflow
- Step 1: Go to your POEditor account, click on your username in the navigation bar and then go to Account Settings > API Access. Generate an API token and copy it to the POEditor plugin in your WordPress account, where it says POEditor API KEY. A page will be generated, with all the software localization projects in your POEditor account (if you have any) and your local WordPress language files.
- Step 2: Click on Create project in the POEditor plugin to start a new translation project. A corresponding project will be created in your account on the POEditor localization platform.
- Step 3: Add a language in the POEditor plugin to the newly created project, and then link a WordPress language file to it by clicking on Assign file.
- Step 4: Press Export to send the terms from your local WordPress language file (.po or .pot) to your project on the POEditor software localization platform.
