I'm using WordPress v4.9.5 and install CiviCRM v4.7.31 I want to activate 'Thai' language to CiviCRM, but there is no option to include this one into system. I try to check at Administrator > Localization > Language, Currency, Locations There is only one available which is "English (United States)"

I also try to contribute to translate project at https://www.transifex.com/civicrm/civicrm/translate/#th_TH but there is no progress yet, it's about 5%

I download l10n from https://download.civicrm.org/civicrm-4.7.31-l10n.tar.gz but don't know how to install these folders to CiviCRM (there are multiple folders of l10n, and sql folder which does not have Thai files)

Could anyone help me?

    It sounds like you've already discovered the Thai translation is only around 5% complete. It would be great if you can help translate at the transifex.com link you've posted.

  • Yes, of course... I've been contributed to translate these words from English to Thai language in the meantime, however the question is, how do I apply new updated translation to CiviCRM in WordPress?

Since it's below 20% they aren't included in the download. You can use the instructions in the Administrator Guide wiki to get the files into CiviCRM. There is also more information at https://lab.civicrm.org/dev/translation/wikis/home


Would it be possible if I use some script of Google Translate or another plugins to WordPress for making translation directly on CiviCRM?

I try to use this one >> Translate WordPress with GTranslate https://wordpress.org/plugins/gtranslate/ but it works on frontend pages, but it does not work on backend system.

  • This sounds like a separate question so should be posted as a separate question, but in CiviCRM you can try Administer -> Customize data and screens -> Word replacements, but that feature isn't really intended for full translation.

  • Yes, it could be separate question, however actually it's still in my intention to translate CiviCRM from English to Thai language.
