Translating the theme

There are several ways to translate the theme. The easiest way is to use plugins such as Loco translate or WPML, since everything can be done within the WordPress dashboard, there’s no need to deal with renaming the files and file uploads. Using Poedit software is the other way to do that, but it’ll take several more steps compared to using a plugin.
