Translation introduction

When we created Kalium we had in mind that it won’t be only dedicated to the english speaking audience, and that is why had to take care of every word and sentence to make it as more personalized as we can.

If the site you are building the site for a single language, then you only need to translate the theme strings and for this, we recommend using Loco Translate

When your site has more than a language, and you have to translate everything in your site then you need a multi-lingual plugin, which will make your site completely multilingual and every part of it can be translated and for this, we recommend using WPML.

In both cases, if the language you’re building your site is not already included in our pre-translated languages (see below), you will need to translate the theme strings manually and if you want to contribute to Kalium by submitting a new language it would be more than welcome.
