I have installed CiviCRM 4.7.2 on Joomla and then copied the French language file (
l10n/fr_CA/LC_MESSAGES/civicrm.mo). This allowed me to change the default language to fr_CA and most of CiviCRM is now French.
Now I'm looking to install the French language database data file (
civicrm_data.fr_CA.mysql) to have the countries, activities and many more strings in French, but it seems this can't be done once the install is complete? Is that right?
The only way I can think of to install this database file is to reinstall CiviCRM but by first replacing the original (English)
civicrm_data.mysql file with the content of the
civicrm_data.fr_CA.mysql file in the install package. Is this the only way? It feels like a strange hack and the i18n install guide does not mention this database file.
