I tried to translate the Karma theme in Dutch.
Followed the instructions in the Knowledge base (True Themes).
Translated the en_US.po (some of it, the words I thought would show up on the front end)
Updated the wp-config.php, entered nl_NL.po for Dutch
nl_NL .po and .mo are in the same directory as en_US .po and .mo
I am using the Karma child theme
Question: help me set this straight so the theme shows the right translations

it should be just <strong>nl_NL</strong>. Check that first :--)
If wp-config.php is properly set and you have the [[LINK href="http://nl.wordpress.org/"]]core WP translation files[[/LINK]] in place, you should see your backend in dutch.
Here is a screenshot of the nl_NL. files
Does that look OK?
