I’m sorry for the silly question, but want to translate the plugin into Spanish and I can’t find the languages folder. Where is it?
I beg you pardon in advance if the answer is too obvious,
Hi, sorry if this a basic question. In the language folder I found the .po and .mo file for Spanish, the question is how do I indicate ProfileGrid to use Spanish for all the plugin?
You need to update site language from WordPress settings.
I translated your plugin into French.
How can I send it to you?
For the record some sentences are still in English and not referenced in the .pot file.
PS: I send this message a second time cause i was not logged the first time.
Thank you, please contact us from our support page (browse from top menu). We will reply back, and request the translation files.
Translation works fine. But i don’t find a way to translate the extensions like Group Photos.

Thank you for writing to us. While ProfileGrid core is fully translatable, we are still working on making its extensions translator friendly.
Stay tuned as we release an update on this in the near future.
Why you dont answer to my suggestions to translate your plugin to Russian?
Is it possible to translate ProfileGrid via in-WP-site LocoTranslate?
When, at what month, your extensions will be translatable?
PS Have you a plan to integrate some powerful comments system as wpDiscuz with ProfileGrid or create your own multi-functional comments engine?
Hi, There appears to be some miscommunication. We did respond to your ticket. I apologize for the delay due to weekend. Yes, you can translate core plugin via in-WP-site LocoTranslate. We are presently working on extensions compatibility. In the release going out today we have also fixed compatibility with wpDiscuz. A dedicated comments engine is an interesting idea and we will surely consider it once current pipeline of features has been delivered.
What is the better way to translate your ProfileGrid:
Why LocoTranslate shows only 1518 strokes when WP-locale shows 2093? What is the different?
Hi, Both plugins should works fine. In Loco Translate you need to sync POT file to be able to see newer strings after update. We made some strings changes recently (including today’s release), so make sure you are using latest release.
