Translating the theme

You can translate theme text strings (for example the weekdays) on two different ways:

1. Translate theme language file

You can translate the theme by editing the included .pot language file with a program like PoEdit. After translating please export the .po and .mo files which you need to upload in the language folder of the theme (theme-folder/language/).
