# Theme Translation

# Change Language

Firma is fully translatable and it comes with the following translations out of the box:

  • ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ Spanish
  • ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ English
  • ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท French (thanks Cรฉdric Godart!)

To change the language of your website just open the Ghost Admin, head to General and expand the Publication language section, now simply enter the language locale (opens new window) that you prefer, for example en for English or es for Spanish.

If you want to use a different language you have to make a copy of locales/en.json and rename it to [language_code].json. The [language_code] part needs to be replaced with a valid ISO Language Code (opens new window), for example de.json for German.

Then you have to edit that file with a text editor and replace all the translations with yours.

TIP

To find more info about theme translation please head over the Ghost documentation (opens new window).

# Replace Translations With Your Own Text

If you want to replace any of the texts that come with the theme you can do the following:

  1. Unzip the theme folder (firma.zip).
  2. Open the file /locales/en.json (for Egnlish) with some text/code editor.
  3. Search for the text you want to change and replace the text on the right side with your own text.

For example, if you want to replace the text Subscribe now and have access to all our stories, enjoy exclusive content and stay up to date with constant updates. with the tex Signup now to have access to all the premium content. you can search for it within the file and replace it on the right side, then it should look like this:

"Subscribe now and have access to all our stories, enjoy exclusive content and stay up to date with constant updates.": "Signup now to have access to all the premium content."
  1. Save your changes, zip the theme folder and upload it again.

WARNING

Please note that you must leave the text on the left side as it is because that part works like a key, you only need to modify the text on the right side.
