Changing the Language of Website in WordPress

In order to use WordPress in your target language:

  1. Check out WordPress in Your Language and see whether your language is available or not.
  2. If the completely translated version is available, download and install that, otherwise, go to the WordPress Localization Repository and find your language.
  3. Download the .mo file.
  4. upload the file to /wp-content/languages or /<strong>wp-includes/languages</strong>.
  5. Open the wp-config.php file in your WordPress install.
  6. Add this code: define ('WPLANG', 'nl_NL'). Instead of 'nl_NL' you can choose your language code. (Find below)
  7. After updating the wp-config.php file, the WordPress backend will be displayed in your chosen language.
