Hey Guys,

How do you handle localisation in your WordPress themes? Do you have an area in your theme options panel or use a plugin?

localization is defined in the wp-config file so as long as you code your theme properly you’ll be fine http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language

I wrote a post on localizing themes (creating the .po and .mo files) and a video on how to translate these and use them for your site.

It might be of help to you: http://www.wpexplorer.com/blog/localize-translate-your-wordpress-themes.html
