    I would like to have Japanese translation.
    In WordPress config file, I defined WPLANG to JA and the control panels are all in Japanese but not the website.

    There is a languages folder inside extinct and fould po and mo files so I copied es_ES.po then changed it to ja_JA.po. After that I edit some parts using PO edit (if save then saved as mo automatically right?). I uploaded to Languages folder exists inside extinct theme folder but nothing changed or happened….

    I guess, I’m doing this wrong.
    Could you please tell me what I should be doing?


    Probably you missed the below step:

    You have to tell WordPress which language to use to activate the theme translation.

    You can do this by editing the wp-config.php file (the file is located in the main directory of your WordPress files) and defining the WPLANG constant. You have to set your language code there, for example fr_FR for French translation.

    Just add the line below to your wp-config.php or change it if it already exists:

    define (‘WPLANG’, ‘fr_FR’);

    Hope that does the trick. Thanks!
