There’s a good overview of bbPress’ translation framework (with links to existing translations and to useful posts) on bbshowcase.org:
According to that, bbPress uses the same translation approach as WordPress:
The approach seems to be:
1) You download the POT file, which has all the English strings in it.
2) You translate the strings into your language (Greek) and save the file as a .po file
3) You optimize the .po file into a machine readable .mo file
Looks like you can get the bbPress POT file for whichever version you’re using here:
Many thanks John, this is awesome advice.
I just found this post and I would like to participate in the translation of bbPress ..
If someone already started any translation and reads this .. well, reply to this so we can talk.
if you use poedit it generate automatically .mo when you save the .po
i use it to translate bbpress, wpmu and buddypress
is there a greek version of bbPress available now, or do I have to follow the above procedure?
