Adding Languages

Permalink Browser Info Environment
I have read the instructions for adding languages...

Copy translated '' into '\packages\theme_pixel\languages\{language}_{country}\LC_MESSAGES\'

I have uploaded the .om language files I require into languages folder, but not clear on what to do next. I can see its probably editing file but its lost me... sorry.

Please can you help.

After adding the language file, the admin section will use the new language in admin sections, provided that you have changed the language at:
Dashboard > System & Settings > Basic > Languages > Default Language

I have selected the tick box 'Offer choice of language on login' and logged out and back in but no other languages are appearing either in the back end or on the site.

Then I realized you need to click the 'update/install languages' button to the top right.
So this is confusing as it looks like I didn't need to copy the .mo files over as its installing them from this interface.
Sadly even though I have now added languages using the second method and logged out and back in again I still only have English as the choice on the site.
Very confused?

Actually, I'm not sure what do you want to achieve, but you should know this is only for dashboard section of your site. When you log in with the different language than English (I suppose you have chosen the different lang from login page combo box), you should see all strings in the dashboard in your chosen language.
The language file you have put in the /packages/theme_pixel/languages/ folder is responsible only for strings in "Dashboard > Pages & Theme > Pixel Option" page. It translates them into your chosen language. For example, if you logged in Italian, and you have put "" in "\packages\theme_pixel\languages\it_IT\LC_MESSAGES\", you should be able to see "Pixel Option" page in Italian.

Ok, I understand thanks for explaining. I was thinking it was for site viewers to change language on the fly not for registered users.
Do you know if there is an add-on that can make different languages available please?

You don't need an add-on. There are plenty of documents available for how to set up a multilingual website in C5. Just do a search on either google or concrete5 and you will find some useful information.
