The theme contains the main translation file maxima.pot inside the languages directory which will be used by poedit application.

  4. Once the translation is done, save the file according to your language code. Find a list of language codes at WordPress in your Language. As an example, the language code for English (UK) is en_GB, so you will end up with two new files: en_GB.po and then en_GB.mo.

  6. Change the site language by going to WordPress > General > Settings and choose the target language from Site Language drop-down menu.

Theme Development

If you are a developer and need to do customization work, the theme is using Gulp to compile Sass and JavaScript. This improves the development flow and making it much faster.

First, make sure you have Node.js, npm, and Bower installed, then run the-the following commands in the theme root directory to install npm and bower dependencies.

npm install

To start Gulp, run:

gulp

This will compile Sass and JavaScript files, and start watching changes as you edit files.
