Once you have setup a copy of WordPress, there are multiple ways you can go about installing the theme. But we recommend you to install theme via "Envato Market" plugin as it will also enable one-click theme update too. Here are steps:
This is the easiest method to install our theme. Just install "Envato Market" plugin and configure it. Here is step by step guide:
To get started click on the "Envato Market" link in your dashboard menu. You should see a screen similar to the one below. The very first step is to create an Envato API token. To do this, click on the generate a personal token link (highlighted in red below).
If you’re already logged into your Envato account you’ll be token to the screen below (otherwise you will be prompted to login first before being redirected to this page). On this screen you can see what the Envato Market plugin is requesting permission to access via your Envato account (Envato sites, the ability to download your items, a list of your purchases and verification of your purchases). To proceed give your token a name, check the box that you have read and agree to the terms and then click the green button to create your token.
Once your token is created you will see a green success screen. Copy your token code (this is very important since Envato doesn’t store a copy of the token for you), check to confirm that you’ve copied it and click the white button that you got it.
Now go back to your WordPress installation and paste in your Envato API token then click save.
It’s possible that you might see the error (shown below) when you first enter your token. Don’t worry, just go back to the previous page and try again. It should work on the second go.
Once your token is saved and validated your page will refresh to show your Envato Market landing page with added tabs for your items. The added tab(s) display all of your theme and plugin purchases as well as their version numbers and quick links to the theme and author pages. So now you can install theme and also update theme in just one click.

Within this section, you’ll find everything you need to localize and internationalize the Karon theme into your language. It is split into several subsections to help you easily find what you need.
Inside the Karon main theme folder, you will find a folder called languages. There is a file called karon.pot in this folder. This file can be used as a starting point to create your own translations, using e.g. a third party tool like POEdit.
Open the karon.pot in POEdit by selecting "New from POT/PO file...".
Once it has loaded, you will find all English text strings in the left column called Source Text. Once you add translations, they will show up in the right column under Translation.
When you are done translating all the needed text strings into your desired language, save the file in /wp-content/languages/themes/ folder with language code in name. For example, if you were translating to the Deutsch language, you would save it as karon-de_DE.po. The corresponding karon-de_DE.mo file will be auto created by POEdit software.
Now upload both karon-de_DE.po and karon-de_DE.mo file on your server in /wp-content/languages/themes/ folder. If you are not sure for your language code than click here to get list of code for each language.

With WPML you can translate pages, posts, custom types, taxonomy, menus and even the theme's texts.
