Composer plugin to download translation files for WordPress core, plugins and themes from


First run:

composer require bjornjohansen/wplang

Note: If you running Composer v1, make sure to require a version less than 0.2.0.

Then you’ll have to edit your composer.json file. You need to add the following section:

"extra": {
    "wordpress-languages": [ "en_GB", "nb_NO", "sv_SE" ],
    "wordpress-language-dir": "wp-content/languages"

You should propbably want to customize these values to suit your needs.

Finally run:

composer update

Now Composer will try to pull down translations for your packages from every time you install or update a package.


This package Started as a fork of Angry Creative’s Composer Auto Language Updates, but has since been rewritten. It is not compatible with the original package at all, but this package would probably not have existed with the first. There are probably some code in this package that the original author will still recognize.
