Language Support: Translations for the Tumult Hype Animations Wordpress Plugin

Version 1.9.1 is now released, and supports many more languages. If you are a non-English speaker and would like to help improve translations, set your language in Hype and let me know if anything can be improved:

  • :white_check_mark: Spanish (Spain)
  • :white_check_mark: Spanish (Mexico) (thanks to my high school Spanish teachers)
  • :white_check_mark: Italian - grazie @michelangelo
  • :white_check_mark: French
  • :white_check_mark: German - danke @Bendora
  • :white_check_mark: Dutch - thx @Bendora
  • :white_check_mark: Romanian - thanks @ionutilie
  • :heavy_check_mark: Needs Help: Chinese
  • :heavy_check_mark: Needs Help: Indonesian
  • :heavy_check_mark: Needs Help: Japanese
  • :heavy_check_mark: Needs Help: Portuguese
  • :heavy_check_mark: Needs Help: Russian
  • :heavy_check_mark: Needs Help: Arabic
  • and of course: English

You can view these translations by setting your language in the 'General' settings for your Wordpress site. The plugin now contains each of these translations.


  1. Make sure you have a backup of your site! Or if possible, test on an empty site.
  2. Download the plugin from here, and upload it to your /plugins/ folder.
  3. Use Wordpress in your home language by setting it in Setting > General.

Translation was lovingly provided by :robot: Google Translate, so there may be some words out of place. I used the 'Loco Translate' plugin to automatically generate strings.

Translation Help :speech_balloon:

The best way to suggest translations is with the app.

If you're familiar with Github:

  1. Fork the Repository
  2. Open any .po file in the /languages/ directory with Poedit
  3. Make edits
  4. Save the file in Poedit (this will regenerate the .mo files)
  5. Send a pull request with these language changes

If you're not familiar with Github:

If you'd prefer to just help out on individual strings, just reply below with where it is in the app in the format below. The example below is located in the languages folder as languages/hype-animations-es_ES.po

#:  includes/adminpanel.php:142
msgid "Add new animation"
msgstr "Añadir nueva animación" --> "Añadir una animación"

(The last line above is the suggested correction).

If you're specifically helping out on Japanese for example, you would open up "hype-animations-ja.po" in a text editor. You can see this file online here:


I can and could try Dutch. As I am one of those guys and also check the German language one. But that is not my mother language.

That would be great, here's a starting point for you: (you can drop this into the 'languages' folder and the open the .po file with Poedit. Thx!
