- Copy them to your "languages" folder in wp-content.
- In the "wp-config.php" file of your wordpress, change the following line:
define ('WPLANG', '');
define ('WPLANG', 'language_LANGUAGE');
For example: define ('WPLANG', 'fr_FR'); - for French
- In your theme folder, you have a .mo and a .po file. They are for English. For other languages, duplicate the .po file, rename it, change it's header to correspond with your chosen language, and translate the lines it contains. For this, install Poedit, edit the .po file, translate it to your language, and generate a .mo file for it. Both files should be located in your theme folder.
