Now, go to Loco Translate and click Plugin since we are translating the language of the Academy LMS plugin. From the plugin list of Loco Translate, click the Academy LMS.
Now, click the New Language option that is located just below the heading Academy LMS.

After clicking the Start translating button, you will be taken to the translation interface. On this interface, you can see all the strings (Words and signs ) of Academy LMS that are already there in the English language. As you can see, there are 836 strings available and untranslated because we haven’t started translating those yet.
You can initiate the translation process by selecting your word from the list or by filtering it from the search bar. So, let’s start translating by targeting a page in a step-by-step manner. We are targeting the Analytics page of the Academy LMS
Let’s head back to the Loco Translate plugin and click Academy LMS. Search the string “Total Courses,” and it will appear on the source text.
Now, go to Google Translate and translate the “Total courses” into the Spanish language, which will be “Cursos totales.”
Now head back to Loco Translate, put the translated string on the Español translation option, and click Save.
Now go to Academy LMS > Analytics, and you can see the “Total Courses” is translated to the Spanish language “Cursos totales.”
Following the above-mentioned process, we’ve translated all the strings on Analytics page into the Spanish language. Take a closer look at the following image:
So, you can easily translate the Academy LMS plugin’s language into your chosen language using the Loco Translate plugin. We didn’t exclude any of the phases while describing the translation process.
Sync Your Translate with New Update #
You will need to sync when there is a new update to the Academy LMS, or your translated parts may show errors. So when you update Academy LMS, go to Loco Translate>plugin>Academy LMS, and from there, click on the Sync option below and save again. Then any error due to your new update will be fixed.
“And never change the language of your site; always keep it in the language you translate it to with Loco Translate; otherwise, the translated language won’t work. If you need to change the language, do so, but to use Loco Translate’s translated language, you will need to redefine the language on the site you are translating to.”
We hope you can now translate the plugin according to your requirement and present it to international students as well. If you still face any problems, feel free to contact our support team. We will assist you in resolving the issue as quickly as possible.
