Every component, module or plugin can be translated into other languages if this was written following the standard procedures.
The translations can be applied to the front site and to the Administrator section as well. All the language definitions for the extensions are located in the following directories:
- in backend: /administrator/language/
- in frontend: /language/
Example of the steps to follow for creating a Spanish translation file for a component:
- Copy the file /language/en-GB/en-GB.com_joomtestimonials.ini into the folder /language/es-ES/
- Rename the file as /language/es-ES/es-ES.com_joomtestimonials.ini
- Open the file es-ES.com_joomtestimonials.ini and translate all the English definitions into Spanish
- Save the changes.
