How can I translate the Plugin?

Extend Ultimate Membership Pro system with extra features and functionality. Check for available Extensions here

The Ultimate Membership Pro plugin is  coming by default with English interface but fully translation ready. You may translate the entire Front-end and Back-end section based on your needs.

Part of existent strings and custom messages are directly manageable from UMP Dashboard interface and not via language files.  So look into UMP Dashboard first for all available options.

You can add an additional language file for your language set on WP.

Make sure that the plugin folder of the  translation target is on your local machine before starting the translation.

Copy and rename the file with the relevant WordPress locale. For example, if you want to translate the file to French, rename the file to fr_FR.po. In the case of a plugin, rename it to ihc-fr_FR.po, where ihc is the name of the text domain that the plugin loads.

For French: & ihc-fr_FR.po
