we have multilingual e-shop Joomla 2.5 /VM2.0.6
3 languages
language switcher works properly
All menue translated as only you changes category, but Virtuemart content doesn't work properly
English/defaul/ and German work OK
Italian works only on half
Content-translated, Joomla- translated all, Virtuemart isn't translated all from .ini files which is connected to Virtuemart
but description of products appear correctely in Italian.
Only English translation from .ini is given , instead of Italian version of .in
with German everything work properly

thank you for help!!!  ;D


I suppose you have all three languages selected in VM2 Configuration - Shop tab - Language Settings. Also enable "Use english as fallback for untranslated strings" in case you see missing strings in one of the languages. (Italian might not be 100 percent up to date).

Then enable "Debug Language" in Joomla Configuration and see if it reports errors when you are on VM2 pages. You can also see if one of the language files is not loaded for some reason.

I have an Arabic & English website & all translations are working fine but, i have one problem with none translated categories & products
actually, the option (Use English as fallback for untranslated strings) not working, I gust see the translated categories & products
my Joomla! 2.5.7 & vituemart 2.0.12b (latest versions)


I never tested Arabic because I can't read it. Maybe the fallback to English doesn't work because Arabic is written right to left and the system doesn't switch. I suppose the Joomla template also has to support right to left languages.
Are you using the latest Arabic language files from here:

If you follow the link to Transifex in that forum post, you can also see which language files are not yet fully translated.
