Hi,

Please make sure to install WP in the language you want to translate the theme to and follow the instructions from WP Codex: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/handbook/

How do I add some clarification text to the register page?
for example:

SERVICE PROVIDER:
One who offers and or sells his or her services such as time or expertise...AKA; Freelancer Technicians.


SERVICE CONTRACTOR:
One who seeks to acquirer the services and or expertise of a Service Provider...AKA; Paying Customers.

Hi,

You can add that text manually by coding it to lib / login_register / register.php

Hi,

The .po files you have to download for your language, just do a search on Google for the .po / .mo file of your language.

Hi,

What if all I want to do is change a few words throughout the app (including admin side)

example: Service Provider >> Freelancer
Service Contractor >> Project Owner

Thanks for your help,

Hi,

That is also better to change via "translation" in the .po file of the language you use for your WordPress install, modifying it manually may result in multiple file modifications / code modifications.

Hi, thanks for your reply. Do you have a quick "howto" link to make these po mo language file changes? what is the directory I should start in?

Thanks again,
