  • what did you try? Did you get any error when enabling french language? Jul 21 '20 at 11:30
  • after activating the multi language option on the administration interface and adding the language I would like to the l10n folder in the civicrm module root, it does not display in the language choice Jul 21 '20 at 12:28

If you've already installed civi and you're able to get to the administer - localization - languages page, then the following is probably the simplest at this point:

In civicrm.settings.php (in web/sites/default), add this line to point to the l10n folder:

define('CIVICRM_L10N_BASEDIR', '/full/path/to/l10n');


Move your l10n folder into vendor/civicrm/civicrm-core.

The first is slightly better because you can put l10n somewhere that won't get deleted when you upgrade, so then I'd also move l10n somewhere completely outside civi.
