How do I translate OoohBoi Smarter Menu to a different language?

First of all you gonna need gettext catalogs (.pot files) editor. My favorite is POedit. For the purpose of translation you can use any other gettext editor. Google to find one! So… Open a file named “ooohboi-smarter-menu.pot” which can be found in “ooohboi-smarter-menu/lang/” folder. Translate then save/export two files; “ooohboi-smarter-menu-YOUR_LOCALE.po” and “”. Be sure to keep your language files in “ooohboi-smarter-menu/lang/” folder! What exactly YOUR_LOCALE stands for? Well it’s more like a tag that helps WordPress identify language being used with it. For example, if you need to localize your plugin copy to Dutch, you’ll save translated files as “ooohboi-smarter-menu-nl_NL.po” and “”. If you need to translate to French it’s gonna be “ooohboi-smarter-menu-fr_FR.po” and “”. And so forth. Check out WordPress Codex for complete list of locales.
