When we created Noor we had in mind that it won’t be only dedicated to English speaking audience, and that is why had to take care of every word and sentence to make it as more personalized as we can.
If the site you are building for a single language, then you only need to translate the theme strings and for this, we recommend using Loco Translate
When your site has more than a language, and you have to translate everything in your site then you need a multi-lingual plugin, which will make your site completely multilingual and every part of it can be translated and for this, we recommend using WPML.
In both cases, if the language you’re building your site is not already included in our pre-translated languages (see below), you will need to translate the theme strings manually and if you want to contribute to Noor by submitting a new language it would be more than welcome.

Translating Noor with WPML
Instead of Loco Translate which can translate only the theme and plugin strings, WPML is a multi-lingual plugin that can translate pages and post types. WPML is NOT free of charge and to use it you will need to purchase a license.
Starting from Noor 2, we have added 16 extra pre-translated languages which will automatically translate Noor, this list will be updated and new languages will be added continuously.
If you want to use one of those languages such as the German language, for example, please just change your WordPress language (Settings > Site Language) to Deutsch and then after some minutes you will see those translations on your WordPress updates section, click update and then Noor strings will automatically translate to Deutsch.
We have tried to translate theme string on the best way possible, but if you find any string that you think is not translated correctly please report it on our support forum.
