    I created a ta_IN.po file using poEdit program. It accumulated 2000+ strings. did few translation just to check and saved and it created ta_IN.mo file.

    I copied that file to the /wp-includes/languages/ folder.
    edited the wp-config.php file line
    define ('WPLANG', 'ta_IN');

    when I view the webpage, it doesn't show the translation.
    I tried 'ta', given other names, and nothing seems to display the translation.

    What am I missing?
    does the nameing of the .po/ .mo file matters? I could name ttt.mo and put 'ttt' in the wp-config.php file & It should work right?

    You have to go tp Option -> General and select the language to test it on your own blog.

    Thanks a lot KKWangen,

    Now I see it.

    BTW, the setting is under
    SITE ADMIN ==> OPTIONS ==> DEFAULT LANGUAGE

    Where is that? I don't get that option to change the language. I use Wordpress MU 1.0

    Are you logged in as the site admin? Not the same as a blog admin. your username should be 'admin".

    skcsknathan001: You can use that option for sitewide blogs.

    What is it with translations? Hasn't anyone learned from Star Trek that almost everyone in the universe speaks English?

    Yes, but notice the trend change?
    before it was Latin, but then English became superior because of its economic growth. Now look whose economy growing immensly.

    In the crowd I run in, Latin is making a comeback. :)
