    In reply to: Languages in bbPress


    Like WordPress, bbPress has the built in capability to be used in any language. The instructions below assume you have already configured WordPress in Your Language and Installing WordPress in Your Language.

    Like WordPress, you don’t have to lift a finger to apply bbPress translations or translation updates. Most sites are now able to automatically apply these updates in the background. If your site is capable of one-click updates without entering FTP credentials, then your site should be able to automatically update translations.

    Go to and select the current version of bbPress (or the latest dev branch)

    Select your preferred language eg. Portuguese (Brazil)

    Select ‘all current’ as ‘.po’ and click ‘export’ and save this file to a folder on your computer, do the same again this time selecting ‘.mo’

    I ‘d like to change the meta titles (browser’s page title) for bbpress’ profile/user pages as it was not catched by the translation in my language.
    So far I tried this which does not work:

    function amend_title () 
    { elseif ( bbp_is_single_user() ) { 
    	if ( bbp_is_user_home() ) { 
    $new_title['text'] = esc_attr_x( 'Translation of Your Profile', 'User viewing his/her own profile', 'bbpress' ); 
    } else { 
    			$new_title['text'] = sprintf( esc_attr_x( "%s's", 'User viewing another users profile', 'bbpress' ), get_userdata( bbp_get_user_id() )->display_name ); 
    if ( bbp_is_single_user_topics() ) { 
    			$new_title['format'] = esc_attr__( "%s Translation of topics",        'bbpress' ); 
    } elseif ( bbp_is_single_user_replies() ) { 
    			$new_title['format'] = esc_attr__( "%s Translation of replies",       'bbpress' ); 
    } elseif ( bbp_is_favorites() ) { 
    			$new_title['format'] = esc_attr__( "%s Translation of favorites",     'bbpress' ); 
    } elseif ( bbp_is_subscriptions() ) { 
    			$new_title['format'] = esc_attr__( "%s Translation of subscriptions", 'bbpress' ); 
    } else { 
    			$new_title['format'] = esc_attr__( "%s Translation of profile",       'bbpress' ); 
    } elseif ( bbp_is_single_user_edit() ) { 
    if ( bbp_is_user_home_edit() ) { 
    			$new_title['text']   = esc_attr__( 'Translation of edit profile', 'bbpress' ); 
    } else { 
    			$new_title['text']   = get_userdata( bbp_get_user_id() )->display_name; 
    			$new_title['format'] = esc_attr__( "Translation of edit %s's profile", 'bbpress' ); 
     return $new_title; 
    add_filter('bbp_before_title_parse_args', 'amend_title' ); 

    Any help is much appreciated!



    Ohh unfortunately it is not fully fixed yet :( the “send” button of the compose form is always partly hidden by the our sidebar on the right. It’s different with various browsers: more or less hidden.

    On the screenshot you see that the send button just is “se”, the rest is hidden.

    Live here: (but you need to login)
    Note: The German translation for “send” is “senden”, so if you see “send” there are still 2 letters missing.



    I can’t seem to get my translation to work since updating to 2.5.6.

    Wordpress version: 4.1.1
    Site language: da_DK

    The forum changed to english after updating BBpress. Before that, it worked fine in Danish language.

    I’ve tried uploaded bbpress-da_DK.po and til both /wp-content/languages/bbpress and /wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-languages but it still doesn’t work on frontend and backend.

    My wp-config.php is set to da_DK.

    I’ve also tried to deactivate some of the latest plugins i’ve installed but it doesn’t do it.

    Hope someone can help me solve this.



    I’m very interested in this. Is it possible for you to send me the files for the translation?

    In my site I use two languages, English an Dutch. It took me a lot of time to get it running but after the install of the bbPress Multilingual plugin it seems fine. I have a translated forum.

    However the content of the topics are nit visible in both languages. Only in English or in Dutch. That depend on the page the topic is created. What I want is 1 forum, shown in the English AND in the Dutch site with the same topics.

    I’m running Worpress 4.1, bbPress 2.5.4, bbPress Multilingual 0.9. The translation is managed by WPML.

    Your advice please.

    I am a validator from the Romanian team. We completed the translations for BuddyPress and bbPress in Romanian language and I wanted to try a live test. When I have install the BuddyPress in the Romanian WordPress 4.1, the Update from Dashboard immediately notified me that I can install the translation for BuddyPress, and the installation of the Romanian translation went smooth. But after I install the bbPress, nothing happened :( Is there an error?

    Then I exported the .po and .mo files from the GlotPress project page (, rename the files as and also for .po and manually uploaded via ftp in the wp-content/languages/plugins/ folder. Now after refreshing the Dashboard screen I have the bbPress in Romanian.
    But still – the description string that is displayed on the Plugin Screen “bbPress is forum software with a twist from the creators of WordPress.” is in EN. I tried to find it but it seems to be missing from the GlotPress collection for bbPress.
    Can somebody fix this?

    Many thanks and keep up the good work!



    Topic: Import Forums

    in forum Troubleshooting


    Maybe I’m blind but …
    I’ve just installed bbPress plugin to my WP, with the idea to import Mingle forums but “Getting There” is not getting me anywhere as there is no Import Forums tab.
    The only tabs there are All Forums and New Forum
    My Dashboard Printscreen
    Am I in the wrong place or…?

    Help please! :(



    Sorry for the language.

    “Tanisma Alani” is a topic

    and second area’s translation is “Viewing one topic (A total of 1)”



    I created a folder bbpress in languages, i put the bbpress-fr_FR.po and .mo files into it but the plugin is still in english language.

    I have translated bbpress into Chinese with poedit application. Could anyone help me to upload .po file to





    Is there any possibility to get Polish translation for bbpress 2.5.4? It’s fully translated but still “waiting”. I was looking for way to download non aproved version but can’t find it

    Anybody knows how to do that?



    Hello, and happy new year
    After almost 2 year from your proposal to switch to bbpress, and YES we changed to bbpress.
    Greek translation is almost 100%, few more strings

    WordPress Greece, now uses bbpress



    I seem to have a problem with creating new topic. When i click the “submit” button, it tries to redirect to the topic for editing (I guess?), but then it get stuck in redirection loop and I get an error.
    The problem occurs when I put permalinks on “Pretty Links”. When I change back to default it stops happening.

    The page that I use for the forum is the following:

    Everything is in Hebrew, so if you need any translation just say :)

    I use wordpress v4.1 and bbpress v2.5.4
    I also use multisite

    Thank you very much



    At the bottom left of a post:

    Stai vedendo rticolo (di 1 totali)

    instead of

    Stai vedendo 1 articolo (di 1 totali)


    Since WordPress 4.0, this happens with any plugins that have complete and updated translations. If you modify them, WordPress won’t know about it.



    I try this code
    add_filter( 'auto_update_translation', '__return_false' );

    but this code not works, today my language files are overwritten.





    I’m using this plugin:
    bbPress 2.5.4
    BuddyPress 2.1.1

    I have language file in /wp-content/languages/plugins
    – and bbpress-it_IT.po
    – and buddypress-it_IT.po

    I edited them about my necessity, but today when I install a plugin I read:
    “Some of the translations in need of updating. Wait a few seconds while we are updating.
    Updated translations for bbPress (it_IT) …

    Update translation performed successfully.
    Updated translations for BuddyPress (it_IT) …

    Update translation carried out with success.”

    I can disable the update of language file o protect my language file?




    Hi everyone. I am currently working on a Turkish site which uses Buddypress as well.
    The translation here seems to be a great start, but it seems to be incomplete as well:

    Do you by any chance know of a more complete version (if I understand correctly. Cagatay has combined multiple ressources / “I download bbpress turkish files from various sources”)

    Would you mind sharing your language files with me? Maybe we can alspo work together in translating the remaining fields so we all end up with a complete set in the Turkish language.
    All the best.

    I found these two documents, do you see the strings to translate here?

    If not you’ll need to wait for the theme authors response to your question.


    Cagatay Belgen

    still no luck. There are no corresponding translation fields in theme’s translation files. I disabled all bbpress plugins (except core), but still no luck.
    I contacted theme author regarding this issue, as soon as I receive a reply I will share here.

    @siktirella it is a good idea to work together. Please share your contact details.


    Stephen Edgar

    I am pretty sure that will also be a string in the theme or plugin you are using, try searching for those strings in the theme or plugin you are using to modify bbPress. I’d also check with the author to see if they have setup the theme or plugin for translation.

    And thanks for offering to help translate bbPress :)


    Cagatay Belgen

    Hello Stephen,

    Ok, I will do my best and add as much as translation I can.

    What about “by %2$s”, “replies” ?

    I am searching for “replies” and “by …” to translate, but I can’t find them. What is it that I am missing?


    Stephen Edgar

    You are correct, the string Last comment, Topics/Replies are NOT bbPress strings, these strings will be in either the theme you are using with custom bbPress templates or a plugin you are using.

    As a side note, WordPress 3.9 and bbPress 2.5 and above versions no longer need define(‘WPLANG’, ‘tr_TR’); in wp-config.php, and coming in WordPress 4.1 you can select your language from in WordPress settings :)

    The biggest advantage of the above is translations will be included when you update WordPress or bbPress, the only condition to receive the language packs automatically is that the language pack is 100% translated, if that is the case then translations are automatically delivered. :)

    It would be amazing if you could help get the Turkish locale 100% for bbPress :) If you use BuddyPress that would also be awesome, WordPress is already 100% :)
