    So we've accidentally built a site using the default "en" language with no culture attached, and we'd like to change it to "en-GB", however, this results in missing content on any page using the lists module and the appearance of the translations column in the backend.
    How can we go about making this change safely?

    Hi Ryan,

    You can add this culture in App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/Resources.config
    <add culture="en-GB" uiCulture="en-GB" key="english (united kingdom)-en-gb" />
    <add culture="fr-FR" uiCulture="fr-FR" key="french (france)-fr-fr" />
    <add culture="es-ES" uiCulture="es-ES" key="spanish (spain, international sort)-es-es" />
    This is safe because you can save the original config file and later revert to it if you encounter problems.

    All the best,
