    Great stuff Pippin, I discovered your work a few months ago and have been gobbling up all the tutorials and reviews I can find. Keep up the great work!

    I’m needing to translate a 2 month old site in prod to French – but haven’t attempted translating in WordPress yet. I’ve seen the above review and your tutorial on localizing plugins (as well as the theme localization you referred to in that video), but I have a question regarding this particular plugin.

    I’m assuming I need to localize my theme before this plugin will work? Do I need to create a .po file before it will pick up on the translatable text in my theme? Once I can get the plugin running, I’m confident, but getting to that point might be a little tougher for a I18n noob like me.

    Any suggestions?

      As long as the plugin/theme is localized, it will work. The .po/.mo files are not required by Easy Translation Manager. If the .po/.mo files are there, they will be used, but they are not required.

    When translated, ETM created .po/.mo file ? or all translation are in database ?

      They are all in the database.
