Ways to translating FileBird Document Library

To fully translate FileBird Document Library, you need to translate both of user interface and Gutenberg block.

Method 1: Use Loco Translate to generate translation files

If your language is not yet supported, you can manually translate words by following this guide.

Step 1. Firstly, please install Loco Translate on a WordPress site. This plugin is to help you generate the required JSON files. And when you're done, you can just remove it from your site.

Step 2. Then go to Loco Translate > Plugins > FileBird Document Library and Add New language.

Step 3. Choose your language and click Start translating.

Step 4. Translate all strings and click Save!

Step 5. After that, please download all .po, .mo, .json files and put them in the "languages" folder of our plugin.

  • To download PO and MO files, you can use the built-in options in Loco Translate.

  • To download JSON files, you can use a secure file manager plugin like Filester.

When you add them to the languages folder of the FileBird Document Library plugin directory, please make sure you have 5 files: 1 .po, 1 .mo and 3 .json files. Please refer to the screenshot below.

Method 2: Use WPML

You can use WPML to translate the gallery elements.

Method 3: Programmatically create a POT file

If you don't want to use Loco Translate, you can opt for a developer-friendly workaround. Please follow these developer resources to make POT.

Method 3: Request live translate feature

Live translate is not something currently supported in our plugin. But it has been brought up a few times, and at some point if we got more requests, we would love to add this feature.

You can upvote this suggestion to let us know that you need live translate for FileBird Document Library!

Happy translating~
