What is the problem you are facing? Providing a details of your problem will help others to understand the issue and offer solutions.

When I re-read the Subject, I believe that I understand your need. It sounds like you want to translate the content to the Kurdish language.

Be informed that language packs do not translate the content. Language packs are there to display the form labels and the messages (informational, warning, and error) messages in the native language - They do not do the translation.

A little bit of research revealed that Google translation only supports Kurdish (Kurmanji) language. So, I believe that even the extension that does the Google Translation may not be help in this case.

I worked with Joomla version 2.5 that supports Kurdish Lang , I easily could install Kurdish [soran] language on that . I do not want to translate the content of the webpage , but the form and label of the template site .I cannot do the same in Joomla 3.x inspite of downloading and installing the mentioned package of the Lang ,yet I don't have that .I hope I could convey the problem !thanks for response

The latest language pack available for Kurdish ([soran]) is for Joomla! 3.0.2 (ckb-IQ_joomla_lang_full_3.0.2v1.zip). Definitely this is an outdated language pack. Still it could be installed and uninstalled successfully. After installing this language pack and make it as a Default Site language, things do work. Of course, some of the language strings would be missing and some of them may be wrong due to the change in the language strings.

Note: This language pack is available at http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/jtrans ... tion=index.

Be informed that the language strings translation for Kunena are being done in Transifex (https://www.transifex.com/Kunena-Forum/Kunena/). As per the page, only 17% of the language strings have been converted to "Kurdish (Iraq)".

If you want some of the essential language strings to be translated, you could create language overrides as documented at https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Language_O ... _in_Joomla.

You may have to get in touch with the extension developer for this issue.

I did some more research and it looks like you may be using a template other than the one that gets installed with Joomla!

I used the template Protostar that gets bundled with Joomla and you can see from the image attached that with the Kurdish ([soran]) as the Default Site language, Kunena does show the correct behavior of RTL.

So, suggest testing your site with the Protostar template.
