Creating a custom translation

↑ Back to top
Two of the most popular ways to create a custom translation are via Loco Translate and PoEdit. Detailed documentation on using both to translate WooCommerce can be found at WooCommerce Localization.

Using a custom translation

↑ Back to top
If you create a custom translation using a plugin such as Loco Translate, you must place the translation in one of two places: the WordPress Languages Directory or the child theme language directory.
  • WordPress Languages Directory: Upload your .mo file to wp-content/languages/themes/ and use the following naming convention: storefront-it_IT.mo. Before falling back to bundled translations, Storefront first looks in your WordPress Languages Directory.
  • Child theme: Upload the file to language directory of your child theme, assuming you created and customized it yourself. If you’re using a child theme that you didn’t build, such as one of the Storefront child themes, the WordPress Languages Directory is a safer location.
Storefront first looks in the WordPress Languages Directory, and then in the language directory of your child theme.
Note: Custom translations need to be in the correct place, or they’ll be lost when updating Storefront core.
