I am wondering how to change text linked to “mo_theme”. For example, to output location of single staff’s campus, I see ‘Campus Address’, ‘mo_theme’ inside metabox-manager.php (framework > presentation). And I want this “Campus” text changed to something else like “Shop”.
I have found “languages” folder inside invent theme and thought I should be touching this folder to edit the information. But no idea what to do.
The situation I have here is that I am NOT creating multilingual website so no need to prepare 2 language contents. 1 language is enough. In this case, English is the original default but people who will be viewing and managing a website will be Japanese so I need to consider changing theme to Japanese. Text seen in the side bar of the wordpress admin such as “departments, staff profiles, courses and testimonial etc also need to be changed to Japanese language. Not just to simply translate them but changing the meaning also because the website serves for different purpose than school website. That is why I would like to change “staff to shop” and “department to services” in Japanese language.
I thought of using plugin WPML but since this website isn’t multilingual, I do not need to use WPML do I?
Your advise is really appreciated.
For the wordpress admin panel’s left side menu, do I use like function change_post_menu_label() and change_post_object_label() to change the text inside functions.php? No other way around? If I use PO edit to change these, it will be awesome…

You can translate using translation tools.
You can learn from – http://www.solostream.com/blog/tutorials/translate-wordpress-theme/ about translating your site into your language.
You need to select your language in Settings > General > Site Language .
Pls use the pot files in ‘invent/languages’ folder as a template to create .po files.http://www.poedit.net/ -Poedit is the popular free editor for creating .po and the corresponding binary .mo files.
You need to do an update in POEdit to see all the strings.
