    Language Support

    Hi all,

    On the Umbraco web site (the "for end users" tour) it claims that Umbraco ships with language files for English, French, Spanish (with variants), Dutch, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian and Greek.

    However, when I've installed Umbraco 4.1 and 4.5 and I edit a user (e.g. the admin user) the only options I see for "Language" are Danish, German, English (uk), Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish (se), and Swedish.

    Where are the langauge files for Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Greek etc ?

    Also, what's the difference between "Swedish (se)" and "Swedish" ?

    Some language files are still being translated as a community project.  You can find complete and partial language files here.

    Hi Chris,

    So the Umbraco web site is incorrect and Chinese, Japanese, Russian etc. aren't supported as of yet ?

    Thanks for the link, but it looks as though there isn't even a Chinese language file in translation currently, and Japanese is only currently 10% translated :(

    I'm looking to implement Umbraco in a multi-country site we're developing, so I'm a little dissapointed that what is claimed on the web site is not the whole truth.

    Thanks for the information though :)

    All the best,

    Chris (W) :)

    Been trying to find out if Arabic is included as part of the multi-language support?
