    Hello I have some issues with translating my genesis install, well not really a problem with the translation nor the plug in, at least I don´t think it is.

    Here is the issue:

    I installed the plugin (the genesis translation one)

    I uploaded to the wp-content/language the required language, spanish.

    Then I changed the wp-confing PHP line to from this  define (‘WPLANG’, ”); to this define (‘WPLANG’, ‘es_ES’);

    The frontend works fine and the translation works just fine but can´t load the dashboard on the backend, i get this error:

    Server error
    The website encountered an error while retrieving It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.

    Here are some suggestions:

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.

    Then if I change back the wp-config to define (‘WPLANG’, ”); all works fine again but no translation on the front end.

    one word HELP!

    Thanks a lot I really appreciate your effort and time



    You should post this on the plugins support area here –



    Ok! thanks for de advice




    Hello, I solved my issue, funny I was trying to solve something else and this got solved in the process too. I´m going to mark this as solved but not before saying how it got solved.  So I contacted my hosting provider with an unrelated problem I was having with a plug in so what my hosting provider did was increase the memory of my wp install and all got solved, then it hit me maybe now the translation works so I did all the changes to the wp-config file ET VOILA! all worked just how it´s supposed to do!  the “server error” message should have pointed me in the right direction!

    Hope this helps some else out there!
