Want to translate a PixelPress theme or any other WordPress theme to your language?
Below is a brief, step-by-step overview of how to do just that using Poedit.
Poedit makes it easier for translators to translate a theme’s text into the language of choice.
Download and install Poedit on your computer.
Download a copy of your theme’s .po file to your computer using your FTP program of choice. This file is usually located inside the “languages” folder. (yoursite.com/wp-content/themes/yourtheme/languages)
Open the .po file using the Poedit program.
Click on a text row in Poedit and translate each line as required.
Once you’ve translated all the text you’d like translated, click on the “save” button to overwrite the previous .po file on your computer and generate a .mo file which is the one that WordPress will use to translate your theme.
Upload the newly translated .po and .mo files back to your theme, overwriting the previous versions.
Not clear? Want some further explanation? Stefan Wallin has produced a great video how-to.
Hope that helps!

Hi Branden! Useful steps to consider when translating a WordPress theme, bu my suggestion is to check out https://poeditor.com/, which might be a better alternative to Poedit. It is a collaborative translation management platform created to simplify and improve the localization workflow for both translators and developers.
Thanks Dave. Agreed. PoEditor is a great tool and a notable alternative to poedit.
