Home Home Translation How to translate ListingPro?

This article covers the following:

PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY:

These instructions are for SINGLE LANGUAGE translation and also can be applied to ENGLISH language users who want to just CHANGE TEXT (Example: Add Listing to Submit Listing). ENGLISH language users shouldn’t get confused with the word Translation here, as this is the only way to change all default text like many other themes. 
Before you start translating from scratch, check if your language translation is available. Check out Where to download my language translation?
Before proceeding you check if your default language under WordPress Admin Settings > General > Site Language matches the language that you are translating in Loco Translate in order for it to take effect.

For example, if you are translating the site into Brazilian Portuguese. Check under the Site Language, Português (Portuguese) is selected.

The above language should match the language (Portuguese) you are planning to create or have already created in Loco Translate.
