BuddyPress in Your Language
Like WordPress, BuddyPress has the built in capability to be used in any language. The instructions below assume you have already configured WordPress in Your Language with
define ('WPLANG', ''); in your WordPress
wp-config.php file, if you have not setup this do this first by Installing WordPress in Your Language.
Getting the language files
Go to http://translate.wordpress.org/projects/buddypress/ and select your preferred language e.g. Hungarian
Select ‘all current’ as ‘.po’ and click ‘export’ and save this file to a folder on your computer, do the same again this time selecting ‘.mo’
Using the language files
Rename each file of the files to
buddypress-plugin-hu.po to buddypress-hu_HU.po and
buddypress-plugin-hu.mo to buddypress-hu_HU.mo
Using FTP upload both the .po and .mo files to
/wp-content/languages/ of your WordPress instalation. If the
/wp-content/languages/ folder does not exist, create it.
Is your language missing?
If you do not see your language in the list, please consider creating a BuddyPress translation, to get started see Translating WordPress and post any questions you have on the WordPress Polyglots blog.
