    Hey Cryouts ๐Ÿ™‚

    in advance: I already know about the translation guides (loco translate/po/mo/…).

    Of course, it would be much more comfortable, to have translations included with the theme.

    I’m sure, for most developer, the texts for the admins can be english, but the (very few) texts on the frontend, which are visible for the visitors, really have to be in the native language. A popular example in yout themes is “To search type and press enter” and “Search Results for:”. It feels disproportionate to use translation-workflows for a few words to translate.

    Maybe there could be an integrated theme option for these few strings to translate?

    Or … can you split the translation-string on translate.wordpress.org into categories/tags/sections/…, like “backend”/”frontend” or “admin”/”public”?
    Then, the initial language pack for each theme could be generated alot earlier, maybe depending on translation progress of the public-category.

    Hi,

    In WordPress the only way to split translations is using different textdomains.

    The official WordPress.org themes repository only accepts a maximum of 2 textdomains in published themes (one for the theme and one in case a framework is used – which we do, even if it’s our own framework).

    We would have liked to separate translations more logically, but this is impossible within the existing limit.
