    Hey.

    How can I switch the themes language to German? I want “geschrieben von” instead of “written by” and “Autoren” instead of “Writers” and “Fotografien” instead of “Photography” etc.

    Regards
    Andreas

    Hey Andreas,

    Good question. If you installed WordPress in English, which would be my guess, the easiest way to switch to German would be to add this to your wp-config.php file:

    define('WPLANG', 'de_DE');

    Follow the instructions here for installing the .mo and .po files needed: https://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-install-wordpress-in-other-languages

    If needed, you could do a fresh install of WordPress and choose German as your language.

    Let me know how you go about.

    No, WP is completly installed in German. Just the Theme is in english.

    We’re checking into this to see what the cause might be. The theme should be in German.

    Hey Andreas,

    Expect an update coming soon to a WordPress dashboard near you for Jorgen that fixes these German string issues.

    Thanks for your patience and sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

    Any news on this issue? I might join the translation team soon. Been on vacation for two weeks.

    Seasons Greetings

    The newest version of Jorgen should have the German translations included.

    Just so you know, the translation portal mentioned above is only for the free Aesop Story Engine plugin, not Jorgen. We’d love to have your help though.

    All the best!

    I can confirm problems with the translations with the newest 1.4 aesop-core and the Jorgen-1.3 theme.

    There see to be different problems in effect here.
    The first is with aesop-core: Renaming /languages/aesop-core-DE_de.mo to aesop-core-de_DE.mo fixes the issue and makes the german translation work for the core plugin again (see this pull request for details)

    For Jorgen however, something else seems to be going on. All .po files in Jorgen’s language directory are declared as “Language: en_US\n”, but I don’t know if that’s the culprit.
    Trying to change that and export a .mo file via POEdit leads to a “duplicate definition” error. There are 2 lines for the translation of “Written by” being highlighted. That error prevents the .mo file from being generated.

    Hope this helps a bit tracking down what’s going on,

    Artjom

    Where do I find updates for the themes (I have Jorgen). Where to download them from?

    It looks like you were able to update to the most recent version of Jorgen.

    Cheers on your day!

    Hello,

    I bought and downloaded the theme jorgen on 15th January. WordPress itself is set to ‘German’ but jorgen still shows ‘Written by’ 🙂
    What can I do?

    Thanks and Regards
    Jan

    I run Aesop 1.6.4 on WordPress 4.3 with Jorgen 1.3.2
    The items WRITERS, PHOTOGRAPHY, ILLUSTRATION in storyfooter do still not appear in jorgen-de_DE. I already created an account at https://poeditor.com/
    As soon as it is activated, I would volunteer to post the translations and hope you could include them in a future update?

    Hey there fupushdev,

    Those bottom three storyfooter strings were not added to the .po file, so they simply need to be added.

    I have added those strings into jorgen-de_DE.po.

    #: ../partials/storyfooter.php:6
    msgid "Writers"
    msgstr ""
    
    #: ../partials/storyfooter.php:22
    msgid "Photography"
    msgstr ""
    
    #: ../partials/storyfooter.php:38
    msgid "Illustration"
    msgstr ""

    Can you add the appropriate translations and then send them back to me here?

    Hello Michael,
    here are the translations.
    As writers is plural, i chose the german “Autoren”, which is also plural.

    #: ../partials/storyfooter.php:6
    msgid “Writers”
    msgstr “Autoren”

    #: ../partials/storyfooter.php:22
    msgid “Photography”
    msgstr “Photographie”

    #: ../partials/storyfooter.php:38
    msgid “Illustration”
    msgstr “Illustration”

    I found two other missing translations:
    One is “Written by”, which is weird, because there exists

    #: ../content-indexstory.php:10 ../content-single.php:35
    msgid “Written by:”
    msgstr “Geschrieben von:”

    Another is the word “by” in ../content-single.php:48
    which should translate to “von”

    Hi Kendra,
    Michael is no longer working for Aesop. So I will address the issue.

    I found the issue and will release a new version of Jorgen to address the issue this week. Thank you for your patience.

    Thank’s for your help, Hyun. We have have child-theme running, tho, which we’ve modified quite a bit, so I guess we’d need a change log.

    Would you like to send me your child theme zipped? If so, I can test to see if it works before making a new release. You can email me at hyunsupul@gmail.com. Thank you.

    That sounds great, thanks. I don’t have access to it right now, but I’ll send it to you tomorrow.
