Languages and Dictionaries

  • How do you set up a new language for the admin user interface?
  • How do you use dictionaries to translate labels and buttons?
  • How do you set the locale for date formats?
  • How do you add a new language?

This chapter is all about customizing Umbraco to your needs, especially as it relates to languages, locales, and cultures. Umbraco was built with internationalization in mind and is therefore relatively easy to customize with any of the pre-existing languages or one custom to your implementation. You can even set the language for each individual user, and Umbraco is smart enough to translate labels, dates, and other specific strings to that person's settings.
