Included Language Files
Before starting your own translation you may check pre-created language files of the XStore theme. All these files have been contributed by our users that's why the amount of translated strings might vary.
We maintain translations at our project on GlotPress.
Translation from scratch using the Loco Translate plugin
Go to Plugins>Add new> install and activate the Loco Translate plugin
Go to Loco Translate>Themes> select XStore theme. Press "Add new language". Translate strings and Save.
XStore Core Plugin Translation
Go to Loco Translate > Plugins > select the XStore Core plugin. Press "Add new language" the same way as you did for the theme translation. Translate the necessary strings and Save.
The translation file xstore.pot is in the Translation Files folder in the theme package. Edit the .po file using POEdit, and use the translation field to make replacements.
From the file menu, save the file with your language name and xstore theme suffix, e.g xstore-de_DE.po. It will generate both a .po and .mo files for your translation. Place these files into the languages /wp-content/languages/themes/ folder.
If you face problems with translation, you need to be sure that your translation files are synchronized.
Button Sync (Loco Translate plugin) allows synchronizing your translation file with .pot file. Then you will be able to translate untranslated strings.
