Manual localization

Here you can learn how to translate your product language files manually.
This process requires you to translate the .pot file included in theĀ "languages"folder of the plugin and to set your WordPress site with the matching language.
Let's see how to proceed step by step.

Change the website language

First of all, you have to change the language of your WordPress platform so you can display the translated plugin.

Go to your WordPress Dashboard > Settings > General > Site Language and select your language and then Save.
Your site language will be updated.

Now all WordPress options will be showed in the selected language.

Language file of the plugin

The original language file of the plugin is yith-woocommerce-product-countdown.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-product-countdown.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-product-countdown-it_IT).

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

Installation Instructions

Install the plugin in your WordPress platform: add the .zip file you have downloaded in the WordPress plugins directory (wp-content->plugins). You can also achieve the same result using the upload feature of WordPress to upload the Zip file.
Then click on the "Add new" option in you can find in Plugins, anc click on the "Upload Plugin" button.

After completing the upload of the plugin, you can activate it. Go to "Plugins", select the plugin and click on the "Activate" option.

Activate license

In order to work correctly, the plugin must be installed following the previous steps. However, if you have purchased the premium version of the plugin and you want to benefit from automatic updates of the development team, or access to the support platform to receive help by our staff, you need to activate the plugin.

Go to your member are on yithemes.com and click on the "License" tab to get your license key for the activation of the plugin.

Now access your WordPress platform, go to the "YITH Plugins" option and add you license key in the License Activation tab.

If the activation process worked fine, you will see a screen like the following one.

Renew license

License can be updated in "License" section in your reserved area of YIThemes, or in YITH Plugins -> License Activation on your site.

License updating occurs by the new purchase of the product related to the plugin. You only need to click "Renew" button: you will be redirected to yithemes.com and the product will be automatically added to cart.

Once updated, new license expiration date will be set to the same day and month of the next year. The only exception concerns those updatings done before the expiration date: in this case validity will be extended to one year from expiration date.

After purchasing, you don't have to do anything else. If in "YITH Plugins -> License Activation" expiration date isn't updated we suggest you to click "Update license information" button.

Deactivate License

You can deactivate and reactivate the license on a different site at any moment. Just click the "Deactivate" button you find in "YITH Plugins -> License Activation" and insert the license key in the new site. The activation process is the same as the one previously explained.
