where can I find the italian translations of the civicrm component for joomla? or how can I do the translation in Italian?

  • List item

CiviCRM has its own setting to set default language. To configure CiviCRM to use an translation:

  • Download the translations distribution - civicrm--l10n.tar.gz - from the CiviCRM downloads page. This tarball contains all files for the latest available translations.
  • Uncompress the tarball and you will see a directory called civicrm, containing two subdirectories called l10n and sql. The l10n directory contains a set of sub-directories named using their local codes. (Example: the Italian translation files will located in /civicrm/l10n/it_IT).
  • Copy this l10n directory, together with all its subdirectories into your CiviCRM codebase root directory.(note if creating the l10n folder manually it should be ell-ten-n, not capital-I-ten-n)

    For Joomla this would be site_root/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm. So if you wanted the it_IT language it would look like this site_root/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/l10n/it_IT/

To enable the default language

  • Login to CiviCRM (as a user with "administer CiviCRM permissions").

  • Go to Administer » Localization » Languages, Currency, Locations.

  • You should now be able to see and select all the localization options in the Default Language and drop-down menu. If you don't, and instead can just see the default 'English (United States)' option, check the preceding steps as the drop-down options are set by the directories under your l10n directory. Also be sure to confirm that the l10n directory is correctly named as l10n (that is: el-ten-en and not eye-ten-en).
