Installing a Sitefinity Language Pack
Below are the instructions for installing and using the Sitefinity Language Translations:
1. Download the localization resources and unzip the ZIP file.
Inside this zip file are folders (named by culture) for the available languages
2. Copy the folder for whatever language you require into the ~/bin folder of your Sitefinity web site.
This example creates a ~/bin/es folder. Inside this folder are several DLL files. Multiple language folders can be copied into the ~/bin folder if multiple languages are required.
3. Enable localization for the desired languages in the ~/web.config file - (see instructions)
Note that the folder that I copied above (es) matches one of the cultures mentioned above.
I found comments in the Sitefinity forums that suggested that the Sitefinity project needed to be rebuilt in Visual Studio and the web application restarted before the new languages would become available. In my own experience, I found that updating the web.config file was enough to get this working…
4. Login to Sitefinity and select a new language from the dropdown list
Sitefinity is now be localized for that language.
