How To Translate Or Localize Elementor?

Elementor comes built in with translating capabilities to any language. Elementor is a project on translate.wordpress.org. We welcome you to  join the team of localizers and help translate Elementor to your language. 
Here's how to easily translate Elementor into other languages. You don't have to download any software, all translation is done online using the GlotPress platform. If Elementor has already been translated 100% to your language, we encourage you to still join the translation team, so you can help with translations in the next versions, or so you can improve the current translation.

1. Log in to WordPress.org

Go to the WordPress login page and login to WordPress using your username and password. If you don't have an account yet, go ahead and create it, and on the way give us a 5-star rating :)

2. Enter the translation page

Now go to the plugin translation page, and search for your language.

3. Choose a string to translate

Choose a string you wish to translate. You can also methodically go over each string and translate the whole plugin, but this could take you a while, there are currently 31 pages of strings to sift through.

4. Enter your translation and submit

5. Translate placeholders

Some strings you'll need to translate will include placeholders. You have to include the placeholder in your output.

For example: Edit {0}

If you were translating to Japanese, you would translate like so: Modifier {0}

"I finished translation, now what?"

Recently. WordPress has changed the way the translation process works. You no longer need to upload any PO files, or do any technical thing for that matter. 

All you have to do is send us a mail once you've finished translating to [email protected] and let us know about your translation, so we can get it approved by your language editors. The translation has to go through an approval process, so you can expect to see it after a few days.

Go ahead and translate Elementor now. You can learn more about joining the translation team on GlotPress
