How to translate the strings without WPML

First of all, we recommend to use the PO Edit to edit and/or translate the static strings of Osmosis.
When you install it follow the steps below:

  1. Go to /osmosis/languages/ folder, open the .pot file and generate the po/mo files in your language.
  2. Translate the strings in your language into the “Translation” column.
  3. Click to save the file when you finish the translation. Then one .mo file will be created in the same directory.
  4. Upload these 2 files in /osmosis/languages/ folder.
  5. Finally, you need to go to Settings > General and at the bottom of this page select your preferred language.

Note: Keep in mind that you do not need to translate all the theme’s strings, you can freely choose what to translate.
