### 6. Prepare the Plugin for Release

At this point, there's only two things left to do:

1. Provide the localization file for translation

Creating the localization file is simple. Since we defined the plugin.po file in the first article, all that we need to do is open the file with Poedit, click 'Update', then save the file. This will generate a plugin.mo file in the lang directory.

Next, we need to create a README file that follows the WordPress Readme conventions. Though you can be as creative as you like, I've shared mine below.

Nothing groundbreaking - just says exactly what it does.
