The usefulness of BePro Listings beyond english, is very important to us. BePro Listings is designed to be fully translated into any language of your choice. This is facilitated by packaged language files. Depending on your wordpress configuration, the plugin will select the corresponding language file. This post covers the aspects of wordpress and BePro Listings that need to be considered in order to feature your preferred translation.

SWITCHING WORDPRESS LANGUAGE

WordPress controls the active language via your config.php file. Alter that “WPLANG” setting to reflect your language and geography. The code has both a country and language aspect. Details about what to look for and how to do it are outlined in the following wordpress documentation

  • http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language

Once you have selected the language to use, if BePro Listings supports that language, it will automatically reflect content in that language.

CREATING A BePro Listings LANGUAGE FILE

The process of creating a language file is simple. Start by editing the “.pot” file which is packaged with the plugin:

This link is an online copy of a bepro listings language file. If you have downloaded and/or installed BePro Listings, you have a copy. Open the file with the FREE poedit software or any other program you have which reads/creates “.po” and “.mo” files.

Once you open the file, scroll to the bottom where you will find instructions regarding the creation of your own language file from this .pot template. When done, your new file name should reflect your language and country. Refer to the following links for country codes and language codes. An example of the language format for spanish from spain would be “bepro-listings-es_ES.php”
