Poedit, a free software available for PC and Mac users:
Or, WPML, the paid plugin for WordPress to build a multilangual site:
Translating WP Cloudy
Using an FTP program, go to the root directory of WP Cloudy (eg: http://yoursite.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-cloudy/) and open the lang folder.
You will see 4 files corresponding to the 2 languages included by default (english and french).
To create a new language, simply duplicate the file wpcloudy.po in the same directory and rename it like this:
Then, open this new file with Poedit.
Select a string to translate in the list, then in the Translation area, enter your text.
Repeat the operation for all strings. Then click on the Update button.
To save your file, just click Save from File menu.
By saving your work, a new file is created in the lang directory called wpcloudy-de_DE.mo.
This is the file used by WordPress for displaying the right translations in front-end and backend.
Just upload your files on your webhost via FTP (eg: wpcloudy-de_DE.po and wpcloudy-de_DE.mo) and you’re done!
Do not hesitate to suggest your translation, we will add it to plugin!
