Localizing website

Hi, I am a beginner in using SilverStripe. I find it very useful and easy until I got stuck in the localizing issue.

I just want my website to be in spanish rather than in default english. I found some strings in the .ss files, others in /lang folder files... I find it everything so spread around, not easy at all.

Could anyone explain an easy, straight-forward way to build my site in my language?

Thanks! (Gracias!)

If you are asking about admin panel just click on profile link (near logout button) and set.

If asking about the site itself, I also dont know, also new with SS :)

Ideally all strings should be contained within the lang files eg en_US.php . If you notice some important strings which are not (in the cms, or in modules code / templates) then feel free to submit it as a issue (and if you can a patch file) to
