How to change languages via po/mo file?

Very few developers develop their plugins and themes in a language different from English so you will have to translate the phrase in theme and plugins into many different languages by yourself, and I’ll explain to you how. There are two ways to do it.

– Directly within WordPress by using a localization plugin (such as Loco Translate plugin – that’s free and most of my customers used successfully). You can also consult our guide on How to Translate using LOCO Translate plugin
– On your PC/Mac, using Poedit. To change the value field of the theme via language file, you can do follow one of 2 methods below.

Method 1.

Edit .po/pot file(in directory languages) as the image below(root is my theme):

languages
– Rename file corresponding with your Locale here: https://make.wordpress.org/polyglots/teams/
(In this article I will get an example: change en_US.po to it_IT.po). View image:

choose-local
– Then download & install Gettext Translations Editor software(free) at https://poedit.net/wordpress
– Edit new file(it_IT.po) with software just installed.
– Change/add value as you want, then convert .po to mo file via http://po2mo.net/.
+Open http://po2mo.net/ choose .po file, click ‘Convert‘ button.

click-convert
   + Then download MO file after convert.
donwload-mo-local
The file downloaded has the name look like: abcdedg_it_IT.mo, change file name downloaded to “your_local.mo” file. Example: changed to it_IT.mo

Method 2.

Download and install software Gettext Translations Editor at https://poedit.net/wordpress then open/edit file .po/pot on the path as the image above(method 1).
After changed content/value, click Save:
– If exist po/mo files language as you want => it will override current.
– If not exist, do follow:

create-translation
After all, you will get file name look like: it_IT.mo

Last step for both mothed: 
Copy/upload .mo file up to languages directory(in my theme) on your server.

Note: to active your local language, you must go to Settings >> General menu, do follow:

choose-language-backend

Where do I find Visual Composer License Key?

We don’t provide license key of Visual Composer in download package, you can’t find it in your package downloads. Visual Composer (We bought extended license of this plugin) but current have note solution for activate with this plugin. license key only can activate 1 time 🙁
We created new ticket on http://support.wpbakery.com/ and here is the answer from developer of Visual Composer

It is not possible for theme buyer to activate the license (and hence to auto-update the Visual Composer) as they have not purchased the license directly from us, but has received it in-directly from the theme. In this case, you must update the version in the theme and must release a theme update which the buyers can download and hence in-turn will receive the latest version of Visual Composer.

We’re sorry about this inconvenience but we will update our themes to run follow Visual Composer updates.

I bought Extended license for all my items(theme), read more here: https://codecanyon.net/licenses/terms/extended

Review Standard license: https://codecanyon.net/licenses/standard

Please read Bunded Plugins here: https://help.market.envato.com/hc/en-us/articles/213762463-Bundled-Plugins

Thanks & Hope all customers know that.
