Translation Preserver


Tired of your custom plugin and theme translation files getting wiped out every time you use the WordPress auto-updater? Install and activate this plugin and
WordPress will look for missing translation files in the WP_LANG_DIR where you keep your WordPress translation files.


In WordPress 3.8 and greater this plugin’s functionality is included in core. You can put translation files in:
* Plugins: /wp-content/languages/plugins/
* Themes: /wp-content/languages/themes/

A free plugin by Aaron Edwards of UglyRobot Web Development.


  1. Install the plugin
  2. Activate or network activate on multisite
  3. Put your custom plugin and theme translation files (.po and .mo) in the WP_LANG_DIR (usually wp-content/languages/)
  4. That’s it!

Note WP will look first in the normal location the plugin or theme defines, and only if it’s not there look in WP_LANG_DIR
