I've been trying to work with CiviCRM 4.7 on Wordpress 4.7 in Bahasa Indonesia, and have been struggling a bit. I came across this post: localization on wordpress, which was somewhat helpful.
My quandary is this: I (like a lot of folks it seems) installed CiviCRM in English, and later went back to make it a multi-lingual site, and added the l10n and sql files for local languages. After doing some research, it seems as though the consensus is to install it in the local language from the get-go. However, now that I've already installed in English, and want to add a language, what is the best way forward?
I understand that one reason behind starting localization from the install is that the sql files help to populate option groups, message templates, etc. when CiviCRM is freshly installed. Is there some way, short of a total reinstall to essentially do a "refresh" so that these settings can be copied into the database?
