Language Files

All text can be found at one central place - the language files. For each language one file resides in the folder /language/. You can edit the files using a text editor.

Carry out following step sif you want to create a new language file,

  1. Copy one of the existing language files and change the language abbreviation.

  2. Open the new language file with a file editor and make your changes.

  3. Open the file /configuration/ and look for the option


    Add your language to the array:

    $t12l['available_languages'] = array(
        'en' => 'English',
        'de' => 'German',
        'es' => 'Spanish',

  4. The new language should now appear in the admin area -> General Gettings.

Please note: You can use the same procedure for the language files inside the folder /language/utf8/, except that you need to save the files formatted as UTF-8 without BOM. If your editor only offers the option UTF-8, you need to open the language file as ASCII and remove the characters that are at the top of the file in front of <?php.

Once you have finished the translation of a file you could support us by sending in that file so that we can add it to the official version of the script. Thanks in advance.
