  1. Multi Author theme

    I am pretty much ready to buy the theme, however I want to know if you offer the po file that I can edit to have my frontend in French.
    I know you have a language plugin, but I can’t afford the price which is more than what the multi-author cost.
    I only want to translate the frontend to French and can do so manually if given the po file.
    Please clarify that aspect.

    I bought Directory +
    Item Purchase Code: xxx
    Purchase Date: 2014-05-03 11:13:30 UTC

    I am running versions:
    AIT Toolkit: 1.7.5
    AIT Languages: 2.0.6
    AIT shortcodes: 1.1.1
    Directory Plus theme: 1.3.1

    I cannot see what is the latest version. Where can I see that?

    How do I update from these versions to the current ones?
    Will it break my site?

    I purchased extended support for my theme but when I go to add a question in my AIT account my Directory Plus theme is not one of the options.

    I am very nervous of updating after the trauma of updating from Directory to Directory +

    Please answer questions above so I can move forward.
