Installing a language pack manually
The easiest way to install a language pack is by uploading the file in UPM (Universal Plugin Manager). Language packs are usually distributed as JAR or OBR files.
To install a language pack:
- Go to . > Manage apps
- Choose Upload App then browse to find the language pack file you downloaded.
- Choose Upload.
- Check the list of user-installed plugins to ensure that the add-on is available.
Once installed, you can then change the site language (or let users set this new language in their profile). See Choosing a Default Language.
