We’re going to add integrated theme localization to WPML and are looking for early feedback.

The ways it’s going to work is:

  1. The theme must be localization ready with all texts wrapped in gettext calls (most themes are built like that already).
  2. WPML will scan the theme and extract the texts from it.
  3. You will translate the strings using WPML’s string translation screen.

That’s it. No files to upload, download, install or include. WPML will do all the work for you.

It sounds simple, but actually involves quite a lot of work, so your feedback would be appreciated.

Would you find this useful? Any ideas or tips before we get started?
