L10n Pack WP Residence DE
Tried and tested: This plugin is already in use in more than 200 sites!


Attention! The End-of-life date of this plugin is 2020-01-31. There will be no further updates after this date!

This localization pack provides the German translations as well as visual and functional optimizations for usage in the German-speaking countries for the popular WordPress theme WP Residence by WP Estate

The WP Residence real estate theme is compatible with immonex OpenImmo2WP, the plugin for importing OpenImmo XML based real estate data into WordPress sites.


  • German translations (PO/MO files) for the theme front end and the theme configuration in the WordPress backend
  • CSS and JavaScript optimizations (e.g. title and number formatting etc.)
  • automatic inclusion of all contents and functions – no manual configuration needed
  • individual, update-safe modification of translations possible
  • optimized for the usage in combination with an immonex OpenImmo import plugin
  • continuous adaptation to updated theme and WordPress versions

Please note!

  • The current plugin version supports WP Residence Versions up to 2.0.4.
  • By default, a WP Residence installation contains some pre-defined list values (e.g. features and amenities) as well as various mail templates, these will only be translated once if the primary site language is German when this plugin gets activated.
  • WP Residence includes some terms and text passages that can not be translated without further ado. Hence, these will be displayed in the original language also after installing this plugin. If required, these terms have to be overridden in a child theme.
  • Normal page or post contents are not part of the translation scope of this plugin. This is especially true for imported theme demo contents.


System Requirements


A quick note ahead: The plugin will perform a one-time translation of some static theme strings that are not fully covered by the regular translation methods (e.g. mail contents and widget titles). Hence, the theme WP Residence should be installed before this plugin is being installed and activated for the first time.

(If required, the one-time translation can be repeated by adding “&replace_default_strings=1” to an arbitrary site URL when a WP admin user is logged in. However, it’s possible that some manually changed option contents get overridden this way.)

  1. WordPress backend: Plugins > Add New > Upload Plugin *
  2. Select the plugin ZIP file and click the install button.
  3. Activate the plugin after successful installation.
  4. Open the general options tab in the plugin configuration under Settings > WP Residence DE and enable or disable hierarchies in the theme’s property taxonomies as well as optimization of info window contents in Google Maps (both activated by default).
  5. Insert the key on the license tab and activate the license under Settings > WP Residence DE. That’s it!

* Alternative: Unzip the plugin ZIP archive, copy it to the folder „wp-content/plugins” and activate the plugin in the WordPress backend under Plugins > Installed Plugins afterwards.

Modifying Translations

For modifying translations in an update-safe way, copy the de_DE.po file in the plugin’s languages folder to the WordPress global theme translation directory (wp-content/languages/themes) an rename it to wpresidence-de_DE.po (for theme versions prior to 1.40: wpestate-de_DE.po) here.

Starting with theme version 1.40, also copy the file wpresidence-core-de_DE.po to the global plugin translation folder (wp-content/languages/plugins). For theme version equal or higher than 1.60.5, this also true for the file residence-elementor-de_DE.po.

The free Loco Translate plugin (or an alternative solution like Poedit) can be used to edit these files. The related .mo files are usually generated automatically and have to be placed in the same folders as the po-Files.
