I'm using Civicrm v4.7.19 on Drupal,

for using another language (like ES/DE) I've been creating directory: /public_html/sites/all/modules/civicrm/l10n

And the "mo" files placed in these addresses [both for testing]: /public_html/sites/all/modules/civicrm/l10n/es_ES/civicrm.mo /public_html/sites/all/modules/civicrm/l10n/de_DE/LC_MESSAGES/civicrm.mo

But the Localization settings page don't show the languages.

Can you check:

  • Go to Administer > System Settings > Option Groups
  • Then search for "Languages" and click on its "Options" link.
  • Double-check that the language is enabled.

Otherwise, it might be a file permission issue: can you check to make sure that the web server has permission to read the l10n directory and files?

  • Thanks for your response, I've been enabled Persian language (and other languages like Spanish) before, but it doesn't shows any language except English
