The final step to plugin translation is to put the code in place to load a translation file. This is done by registering an action hook callback and calling a single function when it gets executed.
This recipe shows how to load the translation file created in the previous recipe.
You should have already followed the Making admin page code ready for translation and Translating text strings using Poedit recipes to have the proper files required for this recipe. Alternatively, you can get the resulting code (
Chapter 11/ch11-hello-world/ch11-hello-world-v3.php and
Chapter 11/ch11-hello-world/languages folder) for these recipes from the code bundle. You should rename the file
ch11-hello-world.php and copy the
languages folder next to the renamed file before starting the recipe.
