While get in touch with WordPress you will find out, that the initial delivery package comes only with english localization. If you want WordPress to show your native language, you have to provide the appropriated language file at languages folder. This files will be used to replace the english text phrases during the process of page generation.


The basis for translations are language files defined as *.po format (portable) or *.mo format (machine object), which helps software to get translated on the fly.
