Man it just doesnt help with the installation. My problem is with the Turkish language. In joomla Turkish was default before installing Virtuemart, now I added the language files as you told and it still uses english.
I couldnt find the xml file you mentioned about <backwardLang>english</backwardLang> I am almost gone insane about this language issue.

Ok, no worry, calm down.

There are 2 places:
* Joomla language pack, located in JoomlaRoot/language
* VirtueMart language pack, located in JoomlaRoot/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages

You have uploaded VirtueMart language pack to VirtueMart language pack. It is done.

Now, you need to upload Joomla Turkish language pack from the link below:
http://extensions.joomla.org/component/option,com_mtree/task,advsearch2/search_id,7122/Itemid,35/ to JoomlaRoot/language.

<backwardLang> setting is found inside Joomla language pack.

Are you using Joomla 1.5?
Go to folder /language/YOURLANGUAGE and open file YOURLANGUAGE.xml; here you should find a backwardLang tag. If it does not exists (but strange), insert it before </metadata>:

<backwardLang>turkish</backwardLang>

Hi,

I did everything you said. I have installed joomla 1.5 croatian language packs for site and admin part of joomla. I set it up as a default language in joomla but nothing has changed. What I mean admin interface is still in english!?

I checked \language\hr-HR.site.15beta2\hr-HR.xml file and everything is set as it should be... 

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
- <metafile version="1.5" client="site">
  <name>Croatian(HR)</name>
  <tag>hr-HR</tag>
  <version>1.5.0-Beta 2</version>
  <creationDate>10-05-2007</creationDate>

  <backwardLang>hrvatski</backwardLang>
  <pdfFontName>vera</pdfFontName>
  </metadata>
  <params />
  </metafile>


I also checked \administrator\language\hr-HR.admin.15beta2\hr-HR.xml file and everything looks fine to me...

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
- <metafile version="1.5" client="administrator">

After that I downloaded language pack for VirtueMart and unziped it to \administrator\components\com_virtuemart\languages folder as you said and still nothing has changed. Default language is again english.

I have used this instalation packages for Joomla and VirtueMart and I haven't had any problem with instalation.

Joomla_1.5.8-Stable-Full_Package.zip
VirtueMart_1.1.2-COMPLETE_PACKAGE.j15.zip


Can you help me please?

Thanks.
Jadranko

@jadranko: I really can't understand, all seems to be ok. Please check if you have the file: /administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages/common/hrvatski.php

I do have that file hrvatski.php in folder /administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages/common/. I tried to open it and it looks fine to me.

Unfortunately, I don't understand why it is not working either, especially because I haven't had any problem with installation.

Could it be because I'm building web site on my local computer? Before I installed joomla and VirtueMart I've had installed XAMPP for Windows from the XAMPP website: http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html

I'm new to all this and I was hoping that somebody will have answer to my problem.

Thank you,
Jadranko

Done as told previously, Uploaded language file to administator/componenets/com_virtumart OK. Greek is working OK in Joomla!Translated all with Joomfish OK. On Joomla Greek language the backward tag is Greek OK, Have Greek in common folder .

Where do we all go wrong?
Is there a language settings within Virtuemart that I cannot find?

A reply will be helpfull

Thanks

Vas

I have done everything you have suggested but to no avail.
Virtuemart has no option to change language in the backend manually and the "virtuemart Language Manager" component shows only the english language although I uploaded (via ftp) all the necessary language files in /components/com_virtuemart/ directory (inside their "language" folder.

Is ther any other way to do it?

Am I missing something here?

Tx in advance.

I have the same problem with Russian language.

"Joomla!" defult language is Russian, in xml-file I see "<backwardLang>russian</backwardLang>". And language folder is installed to "com_virtuemart" folder.

Anybody solve this problem?

HerculeS

I solve my problem...

It is completely my fault.

I copy "language" dir to "components\com_virtuemart" istead "administrator\components\com_virtuemart\".

It is foolish mistake, but maybe anybody repeat it. Be more attentive! :)

zmatek

Hmmm,I got right directory and still nothing..:( but when I set up czech language manualy...rename czech.php on english.php then its run...but characters "šřěčřčščžř" doesnt show right:( anyone have got any idea?

zmatek

btw: charset      iso-8859-2  and windows-1250 doesnt solve it:(

Same here with German, VirtueMart stays English by all means. I tried with a fresh install of Joomla 1.5.9 and VirtueMart 1.1.3, newest language pack.
I have found the parameter backwardLang in my german.xml, but it is correctly set to German.
German is also the default language in my Joomla installation.
Does noone have a clue how to solve this? :(


Edit: I managed to solve it, with our site, it seems to have been some sort of caching problem.

I had the same problem. All the files where in the right folder.
But it just would't work.

Here's what I did.

- I remove the istallation of VM
- re-installed, BUT... I did not select SAMPLE DATA
- so, proceed to the shop without installing sample data
- then with FTP I uploaded the language folder in the /www/administrator/components/com_virtuemart/languages/ folder

It is now fine.
