Loco Translate

The easiest way to translate the plugin is by using the Loco Translate plugin.

Loco Translate is a plugin that allows you to translate your website's content into one language at a time, making it useful for single-language sites. It can not create multilingual websites!

Use WPML to create multilingual websites. MasterStudy is fully compatible with both plugins.

Install Loco Translate

Loco Translate is a free plugin that can be installed from WordPress's default repository.

  1. In the WordPress dashboard go to Plugins>Add New Plugin:

  1. On the opened page, search for Loco Translate, then install and activate it.

Change The Website and WordPress Language

When you change the website and/or WordPress language, the MasterStudy interface (plugin's static strings) will also change, as long as it has been translated into your chosen language.

After clicking the Start Translation button, you will be directed to the Loco Translate editor where you can start translating the plugin strings.

Translation Process

The translation process is straightforward. Just write the translation to the designated area and save the changes:

Some words may start with special symbols like %s, %d, or &ab - these are variables. They can represent anything: a name, number, size, or date. You need to determine what they are from the context.

Do NOT translate them. You can only change the order of them in the sentence.

For instance:

Source text Translation (Korean)

Loco Translate

%s commented - "%d" on lesson %m in the course %n

%s 님이 강좌 %n의 강의 %m에 대해 "%d"라고 댓글을 남겼습니다.

On the website

Jane commented - "Hi" on lesson Intro in the course MasterStudy Basics

Jane 님이 강좌 MasterStudy Basics의 강의 Intro에 대해 'Hi'라고 댓글을 남겼습니다

If you cannot find some strings you want to translate in the free version of the plugin, try searching in the pro version.
