I have successfully created a language package at /app/i18n/vendor/ja_jp and applied it to the storefront.

But the new language package is not appeared in the admin's account setting. How can I create a new language package for the admin interface?

enter image description here


then create a module /app/code/vendor/ja_jp:

file /app/code/vendor/ja_jp/registration.php



file /app/code/vendor/ja_jp/etc/module.xml

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
<module name="vendor_ja_jp" setup_version="1.0.0"/>

and file /app/code/vendor/ja_jp/etc/di.xml

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
<type name="Magento\Framework\Locale\Config">
        <argument name="data" xsi:type="array">
            <item name="allowedLocales" xsi:type="array">
                <item name="ja_jp" xsi:type="string">ja_JP</item>

  • are you sure its works for you? Jul 15 '17 at 9:56
  • Sure, this works for any locale in the directory vendor/magento/zendframework1/library/Zend/Locale/Data . Working example: github.com/karliuka/m2.LocaleRuUA
