German Language Plugin?

13 years 3 months ago #11503 by munchen
I have not been able to get it to work either. Renamed all of the files, installed them, etc. and set ranking like this:

German: -1
Default (English): 99

Yet, the whole register routine as well as the registered user list, the community, edit, connections, etc. are still in English.

Does anybody have an idea why this happens?

Would be really grateful for any help!

I Have install the germani, but i can't switch from english to german.

I have the last Joomla and the newest CB Version :(

To change the language in CB, the language must be set correctly in Joomla. Go to Global configuration -> Locale and set the language to germani (germani for joomla must be installed). As long as germani for CB is installed then the language will change automatically.

after hours of searching without finding any, I did it this way:

- extract (or
- open germani.xml with a texteditor
- replace any "germanf" with "german"
- rename germani.xml to german.xml
- rename germani.php to german.php
- rename the folder from germani to german
- make a zip file out of it, called


remark: use the joomla-language file for changing, not the cg language file, this confused my stupid brain first... ;)

Hi there,

I think I was really not lazy but I'm unable to find the german language plugin download for Joomla 1.5.9...could anyone please help me to find it?

Thanks a lot,

EDIT: Ich habe nun folgendes gemacht:

1. Download der alten Datei aus diesem Thread
2. Umbenennung, wie vorgegeben (vielen Dank noch mal)
3. Installiert in Version 1.5.9
4. Hier gab es einen Fehler, der so aussah "Direct Access to this location is not allowed."
5. Habe ich zunächst in der german.php (umbenannte Version) auskommentiert
6. Nun gibt es einige Probleme in der Anzeige der Registrierung.

Ich schau mal, was ich da an Verbesserungen oder Lösungen finden kann und werde diese dann hier posten.
