Two of the most popular ways to create a custom translation is via Loco Translate and PoEdit.
If you create a custom translation using a plugin such as Loco Translate, you must place the translation in one of two locations: The WordPress Languages Directory or the child theme language directory.
WordPress Languages Directory: Upload your
.mo file to
wp-content/languages/themes/ and use the following naming convention:
Before falling back to bundled translations, Hypermarket first looks in your WordPress Languages Directory.
Child theme: Upload the file to language directory of your child theme, assuming you created and customized it yourself.
Note that custom translations need to be in the correct place, or they’ll be lost when updating Hypermarket core.
