Migrating Translations from Booked to QuickCal

If you've been using the WordPress plugin "Booked - Appointment Booking for WordPress" and are now transitioning to its successor, "QuickCal - Appointment Booking Calendar for WordPress", you'll want to ensure that your translations seamlessly transfer over. This guide will walk you through the process of migrating your translation files (.po files) from the Booked plugin to a system folder to avoid losing them during the plugin deletion process. We'll be using Loco Translate, a popular translation management plugin, to simplify this task.

Why Migrate Translations?

Migrating translations is essential to maintain a consistent user experience for your audience. If you don't migrate your translations, you risk losing them when you uninstall the Booked plugin, making your QuickCal setup less user-friendly for non-English-speaking users.

Step-by-Step Migration Guide

Follow these steps to migrate your translations from Booked to QuickCal:

  1. Access Loco Translate:
    • Go to your WordPress dashboard.
    • Find "Loco Translate" in the sidebar menu and click on it.
  2. Select the Booked Plugin translation:
    • Under Loco Translate click on "Plugins."
  3. Choose the Language to Migrate:
    • You'll see a list of installed plugins. Find "Booked" in the list and click on it.
  4. Select the Language to Migrate:
    • In the Booked translation settings, choose the language you wish to migrate. In this example, we'll use "English (United States)."
  5. Access the "Relocate" Tab:
    • Click on the "Relocate" tab.
  6. Choose "System" for Location:
    • If "Author" or "Custom" is currently selected, switch it to "System." If "System" is already selected, no further action is needed.
  7. Move Files:
    • Scroll down to the bottom of the "Relocate" tab and click "Move Files."
  8. Verify Migration:
    • If you haven't already, install and activate the QuickCal plugin on your WordPress website. Ensure it's up and running before proceeding with the migration.
    • To confirm that your translations have been successfully migrated over to QuickCal, go to your QuickCal settings and check that the translated content is displaying correctly.

By following these steps, you can migrate your translations from the Booked plugin to QuickCal seamlessly. This ensures that your multilingual audience can continue to use your website without any interruptions caused by missing translations.
