First you need to add a language pack for the language you wuold like to use on your site. To do that open the language folder and you will see a folder named "en" copy this folder under the name example "it" for italian language. Now open that folder you just have created from the copy of "en" and in side is a file named config.inc.php and replace the text:

<?php

$langName = "English";

$charsetIso = "iso-8859-1";

?>

with this one (for italian language)

<?php

$langName = "Italian";

$charsetIso = "iso-8859-1";

?>

Now open the file lang.inc.php and start translated to the language you like.

From the admin section make the new language as default.

Just to let you know, you have to create a language pack for german to be able to add productnames/discriptions in german language

after the translation is done put that translated file lang.inc.php in a folder called de

..along with... ;)

* a small imagefile of the german flag (flag.gif - 19x13) ;)

* the config.inc.php file with the line in it changed to german instead of english B)

* and the home.inc.php :)

..once all that is done upload that folder to the language folder together with the en folder.. and there you have it... done...

..now you're able to change the descriptions to german through the language box on the frontside...

..not that hard if you think first.. ;)
