I followed the description as in: https://lab.civicrm.org/dev/translation/-/wikis/Administrator-Guide to install additional languages (Joomla).

This is what my directories look like: enter image description here

and: enter image description here

Nevertheless, I only see 'English (US)' as possible language in the Administration console.

What can I do to switch to German (no other language needed)?

Thx, Stefan

You need to add the l10n and SQL folder inside /administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm folder.

You will need to move all the folder httpdocs/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/ to httpdocs/administrator/components/com_civicrm/civicrm/
