Translating Dokan Plugins modules is very much similar to other WordPress plugins. All the premium modules except WC Simple Auction & Dokan WC Booking, are included in their respective packages. The Pro packages are not ready for translating from wordpress.org, but we have created our own project from where you can easily translate them.
As from now on, you will be able to translate the WC Simple Auction & Dokan WC Booking modules. The translation file of Dokan Pro Packages will contain the translation for all the modules.
