Blesta supports additional languages and allows you and your clients to specify their preferred language. Multi-language support extends to the admin and client interfaces, email templates, modules, and more.
A language translation utility is provided at http://translate.blesta.com. This project is intended to facilitate the crowd sourced translation of Blesta into many languages and participation is highly encouraged. You can also download community-translated language packs from this translator.
To install a language pack, you will need to:
- Unzip the contents of the language zip you downloaded (assuming you downloaded it from the Blesta Translator);
- Upload the contents of /public_html/ from the zip to the web directory that you have Blesta installed under (e.g. /public_html/ or /billing/).
- Log into Blesta and navigate to [Settings] -> [General] -> [Internationalization] and click Install to install the language.
- (optional) If you would like to use this language as your company's default language, navigate to [Settings] -> [General] -> [Localization] and select it from the Default Language drop-down. Don't forget to save this change.
Due to caching in Blesta, the primary navigation will not appear to be using the new default language when you change it. You must re-save your Staff Group settings for this to take effect. You can do this under [Settings] -> [System] -> [Staff] -> [Staff Groups] by editing your staff group and clicking to save your settings.
If you install and use a language whose definitions are only partially complete, the remaining definitions will appear in your default language.
