Are you using our plugin but want to have a legal document translated into your own language? That’s possible! In this article we will explain how to do this. Please note, we already offer Spanish, French, German and Dutch in our premium plugin. So this could be the quickest step into translating your legal documents to your desired language.
Check your default WordPress language
First, set your WordPress language to the language to which you want to translate. You can do this in the Settings area in your backend. If you use one of the supported languages, you should now be set!
Using another language with Loco Translate
Is your language not included in the translation files? No worries, with some work you can add your own translation. For the free version, you can add your language on the WordPress repository. This will also help other users who want to use your language.
For premium, or if you want to bypass the WordPress approval process, you can install the Loco Translate plugin. This plugin makes it possible to translate whatever plugin you’d like to your desired language. In your dashboard, click Loco Translate/plugins, then the Complianz GDPR plugin.
Click “new language” (see picture below)
Now you need to tell Loco Translate where you want to store the translation files. You don’t want to store them in the plugin files: with an update, this would overwrite your translations! So you should select “custom”, or “system”, here.
You can now click “start translating”.
Important! On each update, strings may change. You should then first sync the template again, then sync your language files. You will then see the new strings which need to be translated.
