Internationalization in WordPress

by Chris Reynolds

A large number of WordPress users are downloading non-English versions. If you aren’t thinking about localization and internationalization in your code, you should be. This course will show you how to do it the right way.

What you'll learn

Almost 40% of WordPress downloads are for non-English, localized versions. That potentially means that if your plugin or theme is not localized, you could -- literally -- be speaking a different language than your users. This course will help to correct that; we’ll cover all of the internationalization functions, how to use them, and how to work with translators and language files to make your code fully translatable.
