Do you see your language listed?
If your language is 100% complete, go head and download the language pack and install it using the Joomla installer. Yes you read it correct. Via the JOOMLA installer.
- Go to Joomla administrator->Extensions->Language Manager
Set your language as the default one (NOTE: You should have installed your Joomla language pack (NOT J2Store language pack) before doing this)
- Assuming that Spanish is your language. Set Spanish as your Default Language.
Note down the language code of yours. For example, the language code for English (UK) is en-GB, Spanish = es-ES. (Google to know your language code)
- Now go to Joomla admin->Components->J2store. Does all text in your language?
- If yes, you are fine and carry on with your work.
- If not all strings are translated, go to step 3
Open the /language/yourLanguage-Code/yourLanguage-Code.com_j2store.ini
if you are using french, then your language code is fr-FR and you will be opening the /language/fr-FR/fr-FR.com_j2store.ini
you will find untranslated strings like
What you have to do is: Remove the semicolon and add your translation. So the translated string should look like J2STORECHECKOUTOPTIONS=“your translation”
NOTE: the semicolon is removed.
Now do the same for administrator language files located in
/administrator/language/yourLanguage-Code/yourLanguage-Code.com_j2store.ini handles the language for the J2store administration area.
IMPORTANT: All J2store language strings will start with J2STORE_ or COM_J2STORE if you see something like ;checkout or ;orders DO NOT translate them. They are comments.
