How to Translate AppointFox into a Different Language
There are many tools can be used to translate AppointFox plugin but Logo Translate and Poedit are both popular options. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you using Loco Translate to do the translation.
To get started, you need to set a site language for your WordPress site. To do this, you’ll need to go to Settings » General and select a Site Language. Click “Save Changes” to save it. When saved, WordPress will install the language pack needed for this translation. Also, AppointFox has some built-in translations available, including Spanish, French and Russian, these will automatically apply when the corresponding language is chosen.
Now, lets install Loco Translate plugin. From ýour WordPress dashboard, go to Plugins » Add New and Enter “Loco Translate“in the search box. Click “Install Now” to install the plugin and Click “Activate” to activate it.
Now that you’ve installed and activated Loco Translate, you’ll need to go to Loco Translate » Plugins » AppointFox – The Best WordPress Booking Plugin, then select the Overview tab. Here you’ll be able to see any existing translations.
To build out an additional translation, click on New Language.
To start adding a new language, you’ll first need to select which language you’d like. Then, you’ll need to select a location to save the translation file.
Be sure to select the Other location option, as this will protect your translations from updates to AppointFox.
Important: To protect customization from updates, it’s important to never add files to the AppointFox plugins folder (shown in the Author option). Instead, add translation files to the WordPress languages folder so those files won’t be altered by updates.
When you’re ready, go ahead and click the Start Translating button.
Next, you’ll be shown a list of all text in AppointFox that’s ready to be translated. When a Source Text option is selected, you’ll have the opportunity to add a translation for the word or phrase.
Be sure to click the Save button when you’re done. Any translations will immediately become visible in the site’s AppointFox pages and booking form.
That’s it! You can now translate AppointFox into an alternate language on both the frontend of your site and in the WordPress admin area.
