# Theme Translation
# Change Language
Firma is fully translatable and it comes with the following translations out of the box:
- 🇪🇸 Spanish
- 🇺🇸 English
- 🇫🇷 French (thanks Cédric Godart!)
- 🇩🇪 German (thanks David Colombo!)
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] 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.
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:
- Unzip the theme folder (
- Open the file
/locales/en.json(for Egnlish) with some text/code editor.
- 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."
- Save your changes, zip the theme folder and upload it again.
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.
