I installed Magento 2 stable version. and run static:deploy command. When I change language in locale admin, no change language.

How to add language package? or any other solution?

  • Afaik there are no translation at this point for Magento 2. We need to wait a certain time untill they'll be available. In the other side, you can use the Magento inline translations.

There are Magento 2 translation projects on crowdin: https://crowdin.com/project/magento-2

As of now the German language pack is 39% translated.

You can download the files from there.

    Thanks for the hint! I was able to add a custom language pack in /app/i18n/test/de_de/de_DE.csv - but how do I integrate the different files I downloaded from crowdin? I expected something like /app/i18n/test/de_de/Customer/i18n/de_DE.csv, but this doesn't work.

  • Hello Anna. Thank you for the reference to crowdin. Once we download the language folder from crowdin, how we can add it to Magento 2?

There's a german language pack on github: https://github.com/splendidinternet/Magento2_German_LocalePack_de_DE

  • We use this on our Dev envs and its working perfectly fine. Upvote.

One option is to use inline translation as was already suggested in comments. You can enable it in Stores -> Configuration -> Advanced -> Developer.

The other option is to create your own language pack. It is easy and very well described here http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/config-guide/cli/config-cli-subcommands-i18n.html. Do not run i18n:pack command in step #3, but copy file from step #1 to the directory you create in step #4.

You can share your language pack on GitHub and publish on Packagist, so other people will be able to use your language pack and participate in translation.
