Question How to configure multiple languages (in menus)?

Okay, before everyone jumps down my throat for asking a total newb question, I just want to say that I've spent the last four hours pouring over the wiki and searching this site, and if the answer is there (which I must assume it is), it's eluded me.

I have a two-language site (Joomla 2.5), have installed the languages extension, but cannot for the life of me get any language other than English to appear.

I've logged in as a test user, gone into the profile editor and changed the language setting there (the only place I could find a language setting) to Japanese, and yet the site persisted to serve English.

My forum is going to be mixed-language within each category, so all I need is that the kuenna menus are available in both Japanese and English, but I cannot find anything related to language in the forum settings.

I would be deeply grateful to anyone who could explain to me what I must be overlooking before I pull all my hair out. Even if it's just a link to documentation that clearly explains what to do (not docs.kunena.org/index.php/K_1.7_Language_Support , please, that link doesn't explain how to do anything about actual configuration), I will overjoyed.

Much obliged,

Squiddoxy

G'day, squiddoxy, and welcome to Kunena.

I don't know how to have multilanguage translations of Joomla menus so I don't really know the answer to your question. Maybe someone else, who has successfully got multilanguage menus can answer this question.

The Kunena menu is a Joomla menu. All you need to do is find a way to have multiple translations of the Joomla menu items and you've solved your problem. I have never built a multilanguage website so I don't how to have different Joomla menus in different languages that are enabled depending on what language the site visitor chooses.

Hi Sozzled!

Thanks for the quick reply/welcome.

Actually, I've realized that I can build a whole menu, translating each item myself. However, I need all the incidental buttons and such to be able to be in Japanese as well when a user is browsing the forums via the Japanese side of the site. I know I said just the menus in my first post, but what I meant by that was all the non-content portions of Kunena. Sorry I explained it badly.

Since there are translations available, I'm kind of surprised that this isn't more intuitive. Bilingual sites aren't all that rare, so there must be a way of doing it, just damned if I can figure it out... I hope someone who's done this stumbles across this post.

Cheers,

-Squid
