This is now defined in the Language [lang].xml file in the Language metadata settings.

Well... how about never needing to mess with encoding settings again?

How do I localise Joomla! to my language?

Print  E-mail  Scritto da Administrator   


In Joomla! 1.5 all User interfaces can be localised. This includes the installation, the Back-end Control Panel and the Front-end Site.

The core release of Joomla! 1.5 is shipped with multiple language choices in the installation but, other than English (the default), languages for the Site and Administration interfaces need to be added after installation. Links to such language packs exist below.
