    I’m using an translated child theme for my enfold website
    I’ve used the method described in enfold documantion ( and it works just fine
    but there’s only one problem:
    since the translation was made the parent theme have updated several times
    and now many new strings exist only in the parent theme and so they aren’t being translated by this method

    question is:
    do i have to completely replace my translation files (located in the ‘lang’ folder of the child theme) with the new ones from the parent theme and than re-translate the whole file all over again (including old strings and the new strings)?
    can I somehow copy only those missing new strings into my existing lang files so that way i will need to translate only the new missing strings without translating all the strings I’ve already did?


    Hey Doron,

    Please use this free software – to edit your language files. You can simply update the file to add missing strings
