Once you have translation sets created for your plugins or themes, you will, at some point, need to download them. You can do this one at a time or in bulk depending on why you’re downloading them; if downloading to make a new version package, you can do the bulk download, or a user can do a single download to get a new translation which isn’t part of the current released package.

To download a single translation set, open the project, drill into the required translation set and scroll to the bottom of the page. Click the Export button to download the translation set:

Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress: What is GlotPress?

ClassicPress PluginsThis post is part of the sub-series on Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress which is part of the Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress series. In the previous part of the wider series, I blogged about using PO Edit to translate a plugin.

PO Edit is not the only tool available for translating a ClassicPress plugin; there is another one called GlotPress. I tend to view PO Edit as a tool for one person to create translation sets for ClassicPress, although it does support collaboration. GlotPress on the other hand is intended for the collaborative translations of plugins and themes.

GlotPress comes in two flavours:

  1. Standalone website
  2. Plugin

The plugin works with both ClassicPress and WordPress and can also be used to translate any software which uses gettext. Over the course of this series, I will be looking at the plugin version of GlotPress.

Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress: Series Index

ClassicPress PluginsAs part of my wider series on Translating a ClassicPress plugin with GlotPress, I am taking a look at the ways in which a plugin is internationalized and localized.

The second method of translating a plugin I am going to look at is GlotPress; this is a web app intended for collaboration on translations. It is used by the ClassicPress project itself.
