Hi,

I tried to make multilingual my virtuemart 3.0.11 with J3.4.5.

I read this doc:
http://docs.virtuemart.net/tutorials/multilingual-store/99-multilanguage-setup.html

for translation of description field. But I never found this dropdownlist  of languages.

Have a look on screenshot:

I can see a british flag, but when I clic on it, nothing happen.

Coul you please tell me where to find this "choose language" field?

Regards

Regards

Thanks for your help.

For me everything is configured multilingual and seems fine.

Please have a look at the screenshot attached.

I don't see what I am doing wrong.

Ok. I get it.

You need first to create a category or a product. THen save. Then come back in it and then you'll see the dropdown list language.

It cost me hours to find out. Please add these few lines of explanation in tutorial for all VM fan!
