How to translate Directory?
Directory can be translated using Poedit software. The files you should be using for translating are located inside the /wp-content/themes/Directory/languages folder. Use the en_US.po file to translate the front-end strings and admin-en_US.po to translate the back-end strings.
Those are “global” PO files and contain strings from each of the 4 Directory components. If you want, you can also translate each individual component by opening the “languages” folder inside each plugin (and the theme). For detailed instructions on translating the PO file open the following article.
