New translation does not work

I bought a license from the plugin “Event Espresso” and need to translate it to Brazilian Portuguese.

To facilitate the work, I downloaded the files “” and “event_espresso-pt_BR.po.”

After that, according to the instructions I found on the forum, I used the software “Poedit” to assist me in translations that still needed (“Add to cart” is an example).

After that, I saved the changes and I uploaded the two new files to the folder “/ wp-content/plugins/event-espresso/languagens”, replacing the previously existing files.

Also, at root, changed the configuration file “wp-config.php”, changing the definition of the language to “define (‘WPLANG’, ‘pt_BR’);

Despite all this, the new translation does not work. What I have on my screen is the old translation. I’ve already emptied the cache on my computer. It did not help.

What can I do?

Hi Cladio,

Starting with Event Espresso 3.1.30, you can copy your modified .mo file to /wp-content/uploads/espresso/languages and it will override the default language file.
