Wordpress Theme The localization file: .mo, .po or .POT file? Please advice


For new submit wordpress theme, the localization file is .mo, .po or .POT file? Please advice asap

Thanks in Advances

So far i know .POT(Portable Object Template) is the original from the Theme Developer like “themename.pot”

then i can generate from this .POT a .PO(Portable Object) file like de_DE.po for german translation

.MO files are the same as .PO files but .MO(Machine Object) is compiled and faster for Wordpress.

i hope this is right… as far as I have read :smiley:


You should include .pot file only.

thanks a lot for your support, we will report this after few hours…
