Adding a new language in Magento

As anything in Magento adding a new language is something that requires a certain procedure which we will explain right now and for future reference.

Follow these easy steps and enjoy your multilingual site:

1. Download the desired translation thru Magento connect via admin.
2. Once installed Go to: System -> Manage Stores -> Create store view. Enter the data and save.
3. Now go to: Configuration -> Current Configuration Scope (Select your language from the dropdown) and on the right side under “Locale options” choose the desired language.
Note: Be sure to clear the cache before trying to use your new language.

That’s it, now when you go to the frontend of the site, you’ll notice a dropdown menu allowing the language switching.
