Multi-lnguage issue

Hi there,

After reading some forums, I figured out how to create a multi-language store. So I created 3 stores (one in Spanish, one in Catalan and one in French) and installed the 3 packages too.

The language menu bar appears correctly displaying the 3 languages but so far only the Catalan dictionary works properly while the Spanish and French menus remain in English.

Of course, I did every possible refreshing and cache-cleaning and still the same. The strangest thing is that the Catalan menu works perfectly!!!

Does anybody have a clue?

A few silly questions:

1) Did you check that the locale packages are ok?

2) Did you change the configuration on System -> Configuration, and set the correct scope for every store view before set the specific locale?

3) What happens if you change the locale for you catalan store to another one?

Hi Damián,

Thanks for helping. My answers:

1) Nope but I have downloaded them from the Magento website so I assume they are correct

2) What exactly does this mean?

3) Well, what happens is that the top menu (My Account My Wishlist My Cart Checkout Log In) and the footer are translated in Catalan so basically it works fine. When I switch to French and Spanish, everything is in English.

I just checked one file in app\locale and for French and Spanish, it seems like everything is in English while the Catalan one is correct so this is probably the problem I had.

Now 2 questions:
- while these dictionaries (from the Magento website) are wrong?
- where can I find a good Spanish dictionary?

Thanks

Look at the translations page.
Every Language/Locale has the percentaje of key translated.
Spanish Colombia it looks like the right choice.
