    Hello, is it possible to translate the theme at all without a plugin like Loco?
    I have tried a few things now, but the translation does not work. I put the German PO file in the different directories, but it doesn’t seem to be read. The PO file is also error free, already checked that.

    These are the paths where I put the translated PO file.
    I have already cleared the cache. Tested different browsers.

    Where could the error be?

    domain/wp-content/languages/themes/xstore-de_DE.po
    domain/wp-content/themes/xstore/languages/xstore-de_DE.po
    domain/wp-content/themes/xstore_child/languages/xstore_child-de_DE.po

    Hello, @nils,

    If you do not want to use the loco translate plugin and want to translate your site then, you have to use the poeditor software: https://poedit.net/

    You can simply edit the po file with that software and then change the word/translation as per your requirements, after that you have to compile that po file to mo file using the same software because the machine will read the machine-oriented (mo) file.

    Then after that, you have to put/upload the po and mo files under the directories listed below:

    domain/wp-content/languages/themes/xstore-de_DE.po
    domain/wp-content/languages/themes/xstore-de_DE.mo

    It will work for you.

    Regards 8Themes Team.
