The customers will get a zip folder and they have to extract the contents of this zip folder on their system. Thus, the extracted folder has an src folder, inside the src folder you have the app folder.
So, you need to transfer this app folder into the Magento2 root directory on the server as shown below:
Hence, after the successful installation, you have to run these commands in the Magento2 root directory:
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
However, post running the commands, you have to flush the cache and reindex from the Magento 2 admin panel.
Hence, for the multilingual support, the admin will navigate through Store->Configuration->General ->Locale Options and select the locale as German (the language into which admin wants to translate his store content).
If the user wants to translate their module from English to German then they need to follow the path
src/app/code/Webkul/CrowdFunding/i18n in their unzipped CrowdFunding folder and will get a CSV file with name “en_US.csv”.
Henceforth, now they will rename that csv as “de_DE.csv” and translate all right side content after the comma in the German language.
After editing the CSV, save it and then upload it to the path src/app/code/Webkul/CrowdFunding/i18n where they have installed Magento2 on their server.
So, the module will get translated in the German Language. It supports both the LTR and RTL languages.
The user can edit the CSV like the image below:
