    Hello! How are you?

    I’m not sure if this is a question for you or BuddyPress but I can’t find how to translate this section.
    I tried everything, even installing a plug-in for auto-translation of the site but doesn’t work.

    Thank you in advance.
    Have a great weekend and & happy holidays!

    Hi @marirod1,

    Thank you for you question! 🙂

    Several strings that you’re looking for need to be translated from BP Search Profile as it is the plugin responsible for the BuddyPress search forms. That plugin doesn’t provide a POT file, so we created one with all the strings from that plugin which you can download here:
    https://files.themosaurus.com/bp-profile-search/bp-profile-search.pot

    Once you have translated the strings you need, you should have a bp-profile-search-your-language-code.mo and bp-profile-search-your-language-code.po file that you will place in the wp-content/languages/plugins directory of your site. Then, please replace from the file name by the language code of your choice, for instance en_US for English spoken in the US or fr_FR for French.

    To make sure that you don’t run in any other similar translation issues, I suggest you to translate also the following plugins:
    – Grimlock
    – Grimlock for BuddyPress
    – Grimlock for bbPress

    They each contain a POT file that can be translated. For instance, in Grimlock, you will find it under the following directory: wp-content/plugins/grimlock/languages/grimlock.pot

    As mentioned above, we recommend to rename both translated files grimlock-your-language-code.mo and grimlock-your-language-code.po. Then, please replace from the file name by the language code of your choice, for instance en_US for English spoken in the US or fr_FR for French.

    For those, the best practice is also to move the files in the plugins languages directory of your whole website: wp-content/languages/plugins directory. There, you will find the translation for other plugins.

    This will also ensure that the files will not be lost during any future update.

    Please note that from December 21, 2020 until the January 3, 2021 included, our response is expected to be longer as we’ll be facing a shortage of staff. Be sure we’ll do our best to provide you the best support possible. 

    We thank you for your understanding and we wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year. 🎁 🎄
