Multi-Language Not Working

Post by Big Dan » Mon Apr 28, 2014 4:48 pm

Joomla version: 2.5.19
URL: http://dev.xibuddy.com

Hello,

I'm trying to get multiple languages to work with Joomla. English (the default) works just fine at http://dev.xibuddy.com/en. The German version (http://dev.xibuddy.com/de/) results in a 404 article not found error. The German language pack is installed. /de went from a general 404 not found error to an 'article not found' error after some tweaking but that still doesn't help.

I've Googled all over the place and tried many of the suggestions found on this forum to no avail. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Dan

Mod. Note: Relocated the topic to the Languages J2.5 forum.

I cannot see the Language Switcher Module on your site.

Enable the backend module Language Status Module. Check the status in the with the module in the Status Bar.

Hi Berg,

Thank you for your reply. I certainly appreciate the help. I've enabled the language switcher module and have both English and German enabled in the language manager yet there are no languages listed in the drop down.

I also written a test article and set it German with FrontPage as the category with no results.

The German Language Tag shall be "de-DE"

You are missing a default menu item for both English and German.
