Multilingual websites in Joomla!

Everything you need to run a multilingual website is in the Joomla! core

Use Joomla! in your language

Learning a new software suite can be challenging - especially when you have to use it in a non-native language. Thankfully, with Joomla it is really easy to use the software with the language of your choice. The Joomla community has produced a number of language packs for Joomla 2.x and Joomla 3.x that you can use. All you have to do is download a language pack and add it to your installation.
