Loco Translate

Translate strings from themes and plugins right within the WordPress dashboard.

Translation of theme and plugin .po language can easily be made right in the WordPress dashboard. Loco Translate reads the .pot template file, provides you with a solid user interface to locate and translate strings, and compiles the .mo files for you. Sounds confusing. It really is not.
