WordPress v4.0 and above.

  • Change the language in the admin settings screen by navigating to Settings > General > Site Language.

WordPress v3.9.2 and below

After translating successfully a theme, we need to tell WordPress which language you want to use. So you need to make sure that your wp-config.php matches your language files.

For example, if your language is French, you change the following code line in the wp-config.php file:

  define ('WPLANG', '');

into this:

  define ('WPLANG', 'fr_FR');

Save all changes and enjoy!
