I am finally the PTE for the translation of the GP theme! Approved all translations, and the translation (Dutch) has been added to the site with the WP updater.
Now when I go to the Customizer, all is still in English. The translations are not loaded.
Downloaded the .po file from my site using FTP, and that one is all in Dutch, so the translation is there.
I checked some of my other sites, and they all have the same issue. Cleared site cache and browser cache, no change.
Any idea what can be the problem?July 29, 2019 at 5:09 pm #970573TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
Thank you so much! Really appreciate it 🙂
Is there an “Update Translations” button in “Dashboard > Updates”? If so, can you try clicking it?July 30, 2019 at 4:33 am #970907Robin
Thanks for replying. Gladly done!
Nope, all updates have been done.
Like I said, the translation is present in /wp-content/languages/themes and is called generatepress-nl_NL.po. The file is the correct version, it’s just not being loaded when running the Customizer.
On a test site I have, running GP, I turned off GPP (version 1.8.3) and the translations were showing. Turning GPP on again, and all is in English. So seems to be an issue in GPP.
BTW: I translated the theme into Dutch, but prefer the US version of the language file. Need to think of a solution for that 😉
Hopefully you can find what’s wrong.

Strange, GP Premium shouldn’t interfere with translated words that are based in the theme.
However, GP Premium does overwrite some of the Customizer options that exist in the free theme, so it’s possible that you need to translate those specific words in GP Premium as well: https://translate.generatepress.com/July 30, 2019 at 10:14 am #971338Robin
GPP has been translated fully by me as well. The GPP screen is in Dutch, but the Customizer isn’t.July 30, 2019 at 4:41 pm #971644TomLead DeveloperLead DeveloperJuly 31, 2019 at 8:08 am #972247Robin
Almost all is in English, but a few translations slip through.
I took some screenshots from a demo side I have:

So it looks like your GP Premium translations aren’t coming through.
Just to confirm, you’ve added the complete
gp-premium-nl_NL.pofile to the wp-content/languages/plugins folder?July 31, 2019 at 9:30 am #972338Robin
Just checked in the /wp-content/plugins/gp-premium/langs folder (not /wp-content/languages/plugins) and there were some language files in there, but not the
I downloaded the .po and .mo from https://translate.generatepress.com/, placed them in /wp-content/plugins/gp-premium/langs, and now all is okay.
Thanks for that, but this does pose the following questions:
- why were the Dutch translations not in the folder, while some others (like Portuguese and Russian) were?
- why was a small part translated, but the rest not?
I guess it is not normal procedure for admins to have to download their languages, is it?July 31, 2019 at 4:26 pm #972580TomLead DeveloperLead Developer
We no longer want to store all of the available languages in the GP Premium plugin, as the size of the plugin will get pretty big.
Instead, it’s best to load those translations into the
wp-content/languages/pluginsfolder, which is where WordPress stores languages now.
We’re working on a one-click method to download those files and add them to that folder, so you don’t have to do it manually.August 1, 2019 at 5:50 am #972899Robin
I understand, that will be too much.
That would be very nice to be able to select the language you want to use from the GPP settings and have it installed automatically.

Works for me, but I’d rather not do this manually on all my client sites.August 2, 2019 at 8:43 am #974072Ed
After upgrading my WP site to GP Premium, I noticed that the
moretag was reverted to Read more instead of the Dutch equivalent. So, if I don’t want to wait until the one-click method becomes available, how can I get hold of the two Premium language files, and fix the problem the same way Robin did?
