The language section lets you manage the languages available for the store front. OpenCart provides English as the default language after installation. To add multiple languages to the site you need to install a language pack. Language packs can be acquired from the Extension Directory. See Adding multiple languages to learn how to add a language pack to OpenCart.
Tutorial is provided by OpenCart Developer, iSenseLabs
If the new language pack is already installed into OpenCart store, the new language can be added to the site under System -> Localisation -> Languages. Press the Add button on the top right corner to add a new language. The following information will be needed to fill.
|Language Name *||Set the display language name into OpenCart Store.|
|Code *||The ISO language code. W3Schools has a complete list of ISO codes.|
|Locale *||The code used by browsers to auto-detect the language of the site. Locale codes can be viewed here.|
|Status||Enables or disables the language in the store front.|
|Sort Order||Determines the position of the language among multiple languages in the header.|
