What is the most easy way to install goal manager on a multi-language site? I have found the translation files I am looking for but is it possible to have more languages on one site? and use the Joomla 2.5 features?

Hello Meermartin,

To be able to use multiple languages, copy the language files of Personal Goals Manager to the corresponding language folders, e.g. if you want to use the extension in Italian copy the .ini file with the prefix it-IT to the folder with the same name.

If something is unclear, feel free to ask further questions.

I have copied 2 translated ini files to the language directory
nl_NL.com_goals.ini
nl_NL.com_goals.sys.ini
to the directory;
/administrator/language/nl-NL
I have created a menu itemtype Dashboard;
and configured this menu link for Dutch(NL)

When I view the site (Joomla 2.5.1, Multilanguage) it still does show English.
Most likely a stupid question: What else do I need to do?
I sense it is a more general Joomla question but I would appreciate your answer.

Hello Meermartin,

Do you mean you don't see the changes from front-end? If so, please make sure there is a corresponding file in folder _SITE_ROOT/language/nl-NL. There are different files for the front-end and for the back-end. As far as I understand, you located the admin files correctly, but missed the front-end file.

If it doesn't help, feel free to ask further questions.

Hello,
Thank you for your reply.

I have added to ROOT/language/nl-NL
the nl-NL.com_goals.ini
and in ROOT/administrator/language/nl-NL
nl-NL.com_goals.ini
nl-NL.com_goals.sys.ini

but in backend and frontend the language does not switch

I SOLVED THE ISSUE. I made a mistake and resolved the problem.
Thanks for the support.

Hi Meermartin,

It's nice to hear the problem is resolved.

I've also received your another forum request regarding Goals Manager. I'll give you a more precise answer regarding the timeline next week.
