WPML Localization

Getting started

First of all, you need to purchase the WPML Multilingual CMS package as it includes the WooCommerce Multilingual, String Translation and Translation Management modules.
These modules are required to translate your WooCommerce along with YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager strings.

Configuring WPML

Check out WPML’s getting started guide to learn more about setting up WPML and translating your website content.

You might also want to refer to WPML’s WooCommerce Multilingual documentation to know more about running your WooCommerce store with several languages and currencies.

Scanning and registering YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager strings for translation

To translate YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager strings you need to scan the plugin in order to register the strings for translation.

You can do this by going to WPML -> Theme and plugins localization.

Under the Strings in the plugins section select the YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager then click the Scan selected plugins for strings button.

Translating YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager Strings

With WPML you can translate the YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager strings in the desired language.

When we talk about strings, we are referring to all those labels and related contents, from option and widget names to all the texts shown to users with the plugin features.

Go to WPML -> String Translation. You can find all the strings that WPML registered for translation under YITH WooCommerce Checkout Manager text-domain. In our example, the plugin text-domain is "yith-sample-plugin".

You can also look up the any string that you want to translate using the Search for field.

To learn more about translating string check WPML’s guide on String Translation.

To translate the strings, simply click the plus icon under the language you want to translate your string into. Fill in the translation then click outside the translation field to save the translation.

Now the string will be correctly displayed in the selected language.

In case you can’t find the strings you want to translate on the String Translation page, check out WPML’s guide on finding strings that don’t appear on the String Translation page.

CONCLUSIONS

So, let’s start from here: translate.yithemes.com and for a detailed guide on how to use our Translate platform, please, refer to this page.

Translate with Poedit

If you prefer translating using Poedit, a free translation editor software, you can consider this as an alternative option.

The original language file of the plugin is yith-woocommerce-checkout-manager.pot and it is included in the "languages" folder of the plugin. If it does not include your own language you have to translate following these steps.

Download Poedit, the software through which you can translate the plugin text strings. Now open the file yith-woocommerce-checkout-manager.pot and click on the "Create new translation" button.

Select the language in which you want to translate the plugin.

Now translate the strings one by one. Once finished, click on the "Save" button and rename the file adding the slug of the plugin to the suggested file name (e.g., yith-woocommerce-checkout-manager-it_IT).

If everything worked fine, the .po and .mo files will be created automatically in the "languages" folder of the plugin.

Don’t forget to change the language of your WordPress site from Settings > General > Language to make sure the translation shows up.
