I have tried the way to install all the files and fixed the xml file. In fact the new language changed, but the charactors did not display correctly, like this "ɌƷ??a>". I was trying to change english into simplifed chinese, and set the charset into UTF-8 for every simplified_chinese.php

I am not sure if this helps in anyway, but I did have the same problem in the beginning and after checking steps by steps, I figured it was a small issue of the file name itself. Even in the .xml file shows for example >Japanese< for the backward it does get set to lowercase within the VM code like..

      if (file_exists( ADMINPATH. 'languages/'.$module.'/'.strtolower($mosConfig_lang).'.php' )) {
         require_once( ADMINPATH. 'languages/'.$module.'/'.strtolower($mosConfig_lang).'.php' );
         return true;

 So you may want to make sure your language file names are set to lowercase letters like japanese.php

Got the same problem(Zh-CN) in backend and frontend display - all ���� + English, Joomla 1.5.9 + VirueMart 1.1.3 + Joom!fish 2.0.2
Still trying to solve the problem.
The simplified chinese translation seems not complete one.

Hi there,

 Couple of things to double check before giving up:

1. Make sure the VM language packs are installed in the right folders.
     ( administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages/ then each folders has to have yourlanguage.php files besides the default english.php file.)

2. Make sure each on of yourlanguage.php files has the right 'CHARSET' set, which can be found at the top of each files code. Like....

global $VM_LANG;
$langvars = array (
   'CHARSET' => 'ISO-2022-JP',

3. Make sure that each yourlanguage.php file name is in small latter and not like Yourlanguage.php with a capital 'Y'

4. Make sure you have the original Joomla side language installed of your language.
    ( See publich_html/languages and administrator/languages that they have like for Japanese would be ja-JP folders)
    * publich_html/languages is for the front end users and administrator/languages is for the Admin control panel languages)

5 Inside these for example ja-JP folders, you will find a yourlanguage.xml file like for Japanese would be ja-JP.xml open these files and see that line: <backwardLang>yourlanguage</backwardLang> is set right. The language might show like for example <backwardLang>Japanese</backwardLang>, but no need to worry as the capital 'J' letter will be set to lower case when it looks on the VM side and is why you want to make sure your VM side yourlanguage.php files are set to lowercase file names.

6. Once these are all set, then you just have to make sure within Joomla Admin control panel that the default language set is set to your language and should work.

7 One last important this is that you must make sure all yourlaguage.php files are translated in to your language correctly and not just few lines with in the files to make sure it is all showing right and you want to make sure you are using the same CHARSET as the Joompla side language kit you use or else the they will not show up right as well.

 Hope this helps some with key points of what to check before you give up.

 One last thing I forgot to add. If you are using a Windows server then replace the 'public_html' with 'httpdocs' for the directories shown above.

Thanks for your advise, I solve the problem now by :
1. CHARSET => UTF-8
2. Open the lanaguage file and saved by UTF-8.
3. <backwardLang>simplified_chinese</backwardLang> OR rename as you wish, it does not matter the name, I think simplified_chinese is too long, prefer just zh-cn
The 1.5 joomla pages all standard UTF-8, using gb2312 would not work if Joomla and virtuemart rendering in the same page.
Besides, the downloaded Chinese language file is mixed with GB2312 and UTF-8. I don't think the sender has really tested the files.
Using Joomfish to translate also cause 3 warnings/errors in the "translationVm_categoryFilter.php" which should be easy to solve.

How to install the language pack?
« Reply #36 on: April 27, 2009, 21:27:44 pm »
Hello everybody

I´ve downloaded the VirtueMart_1.1.2_eCommerce_Bundle_Joomla_1.5.9.tar and I want to install the german language, but I don´t find the way how to do this.
This is what i´ve tried:
* in the VirtueMart Adminstration - Extension - Install/Uninstall - Upload Package File - I selected the File Language_Pack_for_VirtueMart_1.1.3.zip from my HDD and Upload File. But then comes the message "Warning! Failed to move file."

* i did unzip the Language_Pack_for_VirtueMart_1.1.3.zip und uploaded the files via ftp to the tmp folder. then back to the Administration and "Install from Directory" - select the tmp folder - "# Error! Could not find an XML setup file in the package. # Path does not have a valid package"
There is nowhere a xml setup. there are 19 folders in the language package and i have no idea how to install them.

Maybe someboy can help me with this

Hi there, I have installed the language pack to com_virtuemart/languages... all ok.
Have the spanish front end and backend languages installed in joomla 1.5.10 all ok..
However no luck! VM doesn't change to Spanish. In some place I read that one must place a spanish.php (I suppose a language file to start and change the settings) however, where on earth can I find this file. OR, what am I doing wrong. I have spent hours and hours trying to resolve this problem and I am sure I am not the only one. Thanks for your reply & help.

Тhere is small problem with Serbian language translation. Depending on language pack one need to rename all files in whole directory tree. (my problem was serbian_lat to serbian)

Hi Friends,
I am also interested in "How to install the language pack?" I have Joomla 1.5.9 and VM 1.1.3. I tried to follow the instruction from Pisu:
"1°: download language pack
http://dev.virtuemart.net/cb/displayDocument/Language_Pack_for_VirtueMart_1.1.2.zip?doc_id=2372
2°: extract zip file on your pc
3°: upload whole "language" folder (without entering in it) to /administrator/components/com_virtuemart

Note: to work, you MUST have installed and actived as default also the corresponding Joomla! 1.5 language pack."
I extracted the file but I could not  upload whole "language" folder (without entering in it) to /administrator/components/com_virtuemart
Could you help me please? Could you tell me what to do step by step?
Thanks in advance

The Language Pack is NOT a Joomla-installable package.

You should extract the pack on your pc (like a normal zip file).
Then open Filezilla (or your favorite ftp software); on remote site go to: administrator > components > com_virtuemart (you should see also the "language" remote directory"); then click on the local "language" directory and click UPLOAD.

I think it's not so difficult...
