Add new language

Shoppica 2 comes with English translation only. When you add a new language Shoppica automatically takes the missing language files from the English folder.

You need to follow these steps in order to localize all custom theme text:

1) Copy all files located in:


2) Create a similar directory:


and paste all files there

3) Translate the copied language files

You should save all of the files you edit with the following encoding: UTF-8 without BOM signature. This should be a setting to choose in your preferred editor. We use notepad++ and changing the encoding there before saving the file is easy.

If you have added any multilingual modules e.g. Welcome, it is recommended to re-save the module options after adding new language. You can re-save Shoppica theme options as well (just enter the admin panel and click Save).
