Hi, I changed my local language following wherever need to be changed, and tested the new language (chinese) in three skin sets: custom, tac-tic, and wpc-darkfire. here are the results (I activated both local and po extraction. hope this is right. I also checked language files; they are mostly translated).
1: tac-tic: nothing changed
2. wpc-darkfire: menu (left sidebar) shows the new language, but not content (center piece)
3. costum: both menu and content columns changed. the best to meet the localization configuration.
I have a reason to say that whether you have changed your language depends on not only your configuration in those files, but also the skin you are using. in another word, you should also modify your skin to fit into the new language.
QUESTION: where in a skin file would the localization be honored?
