After that save it and upload them to library/languages/, for example you saved it as fr_FR.po, a new file will be also created fr_FR.mo, You must upload both of them to the folder

Now open your WordPress site root and open wp-config.php and make sure that WP_LANG is like this

define('WPLANG', 'fr_FR');

If your website language is supported via RTL, you should enable the rtl from the Theme Options Page.

That’s it, your website is ready for your local language.

Note: You can use PoEdit program to edit the po file.
