    sorry , is this a Language file ?

    where i can see it in bbpress files ?

    thank you sri .



    These instructions are for WordPress but the procedure is the same:

    I think you take that pot file I linked to and use a tool like poedit to translate all the phrases that are in that pot file.

    Then, according to the config.php:

    // Change this to localize bbPress.  A corresponding MO file for the
    // chosen language must be installed to bb-includes/languages.
    // For example, install to bb-includes/languages and set BBLANG to 'de'
    // to enable German language support.
    define('BBLANG', '');


    So, according to that, use poedit to generate the mo file (maybe it’s for arabic?) and drop the file you just created into the bb-includes/languages folder. Now change the BBLANG line to read:

    define('BBLANG', 'ar');

    I THINK.

    I am guessing on the ar as the proper language according to this page I found:

    I am totally guessing at all of this, but I think that’s pretty close to what you need to do. When you’re done translating, please post back and share your work. Thanks.

    thank you my frind!

    and i was succeed in this job!

    i will translating tha file in this week and i will but it free to all ,

    thank you again




    1. No, you can’t use the WordPress translation because there might be phrases that occur in bbPress that aren’t translated already for WordPress. I think you already discovered and resolved that.

    2. You already figured out where to put the mo file (bb-includes/languages)

    3. I have seen a couple different posts for places to host the translations, maybe this one would be OK?

    I have no idea how to get it hosted “officially” at Automattic.

    Thanks for translating.

    1.thank you My frind …

    Now i am translating ,

    2.There is a problem in a Tags whith arabic words

    1. No problem

    2. I am unfamiliar with the tag problem, but I *thought* it was fixed in r846

    3. I don’t know about creating a subdomain of You could always create your own site to support an arab user.

    4. Nope, not an arab. American. People do call me hajii sometimes, but I’m pretty much American :)

    Ok hajii :)
