Hands-On: Installing a Translation

Loading...

The first step to using any of Drupal’s multilingual features is installing a translation, so that Drupal has more than one language to choose from. As mentioned previously, you can use a localized distribution so that you install your language during the site installation process. Alternatively, you can easily add a language after you have installed the site by using the “Localization update” module. In this lesson we'll get the right pieces in place and get two different languages installed on the site.
