Today I will talk about the multiple languages feature of Magento.
In this example I’ll guide you to create a website with two languages: English and French.
- Step 1: Create two stores
In admin section, go to System menu ->Manage Store then create two stores.
- Step 2: Select language for each store
In admin section, go to System menu -> Configuration. Please select each store in the top left corner, then you can select a language for that store in locale dropdown.
- Step 3: Create locale package for each language
Create two folders: en_US and fr_FR in app/locale folder
Now you can go to the front-end and see how it works.
