Dear my friends, last post I wrote about “How to create a multiple language website in Magento“, now I’ll continue with a related topic “How to create language packages for an extension in Magento”.

In this topic, I’ll use our FAQ extension as a real example.

    • Step 1: Edit config.xm file in : your_module/etc/config.xml
      Find section and add below piece of code:


      You need to change the namespace and module name to suit with your need.

    • Step 2: Use a standard way to show text in your code
      In your .phtml code, you need to show the text in $this->(“”) function. For example:

      <h3><?php echo $this->__('FAQ Search Results');?></h3>
    • Step 3: Create a CSV file for language package
      In my extension, I created: Magestore_Faq.csv then put in app/locale/language_folder (such as: en_US or fr_FR)

      "FAQ Topics","FAQ Topics"
