How do I change the language?
I think I’m looking and googling to find out how I’m doing step by step to change the language on my bbPress side but I find nothing. Maybe I’m bad at searching
Someone who can “step by step” to tell me how and where I go to do it
Is there somewhere else I need to change? In the config file or something? the absence of some documentation so I ask directly. For as it is now, just some parts of the community who have changed their language is not everything
Yup. WPLANG parameter in your WordPress’s wp-config file, if you haven’t already set your WordPress to your target language
It says ” define(‘WPLANG’, ‘sv_SE’); “
But for me most of it is still in ENG
I added the language files in
They are called: bbpress-sv_SE.mo and bbpress-sv_SE.po
Yeah, wrong filenames. I think they changed the filenames to bbpress-plugin-sv_SE.mo and bbpress-plugin-sv_SE.po
Rename the files and you should be fine
Strange!! No change here
Whats missing for me?
I am grateful for all the suggestions I can get, I do not think it is just me who have experienced this and I am really curious as to why this is so then I have done as above.
My bad. I meant bbpress-plugin-sv.mo and bbpress-plugin-sv.po
Big thanks for your time!! But still no change…What am I missing
(I tear my hair soon!)
Let’s try again from the top.
Download the .mo file from https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/bbpress/plugin/sv/default and without making any changes, place it in http://vaxmora.se/wp-content/languages/bbpress/
I know you have done it before, but have a go again and see if it makes any difference.
OK I did.
No change *???* still ENG and I did as you told me twice
New DL and I put it in
bbpress-plugin-sv.mo AND bbpress-plugin-sv.po
Do I miss anything in config?
I don’t think you missed anything in config as your WP is in Swedish and this is also reflected in your opening HTML tag
<html lang="sv-SE" dir="ltr">
For some reason bbPress is not picking up the correct language files and falling back on English.
Typically it is due to missing, incorrectly named or incorrectly placed language file.
But I can see your .po at http://vaxmora.se/wp-content/languages/bbpress/bbpress-plugin-sv.po
Do you know what to do?
Not really. Am at a loss. The only thing I can think of is that there is a defective .mo file in http://vaxmora.se/wp-content/plugins/bbpress/bbp-languages/ which is being loaded…have a look and delete any .mo files you find in that folder.
If that doesn’t work, then you need help from someone with more expertise than I have.
Another thing…I looked at the code https://bbpress.svn.wordpress.org/branches/plugin/bbpress.php and it seems to seek bbpress-sv.mo not bbpress-plugin-sv.mo so you might try renaming the file again (sorry!)
Can i change that in the code or…?
not a good idea to harcode filenames in the code. I meant rename the files that you have uploaded.
Thanks for your help.
I hope someone else can find out what to do because I don’t know s**t

Do you also have the WordPress translation files where they belong? If WordPress core cannot find its translations, it will revert back to English. If that’s the problem, it’s possible you’ve had bbPress’s in the correct locations already, and WordPress was nooping it.
Dykarna’s WP site seems to be in Swedish, so I’m guessing WP core is able to find the translations…
Sorry, actually, I can’t be sure that the stuff I see on Dykarna’s site is coming from a WP Swedish translation file…it could just be the text entered. I take back my previous comment.
What I can see I have WordPress in form of “3.3.2–sv_SE ” The back-end is in Swedish and as for what I can see the site is in swedish but bbPress is not.
The language files for WordPress are here:
For bbPress are here:
I did as said before “do like this and it should work” and right now I don’t know anything… so how should I do? How should it be?
Please add here how it should be.
and so on…
I had the same problem and I just found the solution.
Your language files are in the right place at http://vaxmora.se/wp-content/languages/bbpress/
But you need to rename the files from this:
Then you should be good to go. Worked for me.
And by the way, thanks for leading me in the right direction.
