There are no language packs for Joomla! 1.7.x.

However, there are both Site and Admin language packs for Joomla! 1.5.x. You could download them from http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/jtranslation/frs/?action=FrsReleaseBrowse&frs_package_id=3494.

Be aware that you cannot use 1.5.x language packs with 1.7.x.

Note: If you do not mind, you could get in touch with Rashan Anushka who happen to be the Sinhala language coordinator for 1.5 version. He could be contacted at rashan.uoc(at)gmail.com

1.7 will be obsolete in a few weeks.
better concentrate on 2.5 IMHO.

2.5 language freeze is not yet implemented, i.e. some strings from 2.5 beta 1 are changing, others added.
