I found the lang directory but where can you set the language for the frontend or the backend?

Is there a way for flexible language settings, so that the user can set it in the admin and frontend themselfs?

Hoi,

You can change the backend language in _config.php which is a file in the sapphire directory.
There's a commented line for i18n settings. Uncomment it and change it to:

i18n::set_locale('nl_NL');

Reload the backoffice in your browser en klaar is Kees.

Cheers.

Is it also possible for the visitors to change the front-end language?

That i add a field in the cms with language english, german and dutch. And then on the front-end they choose.

If the page isn't available in their language you can set a default language which takes over.

I was wondering the same thing, and it looks like there is a ready-made solution: http://silverstripe.com/Language-Chooser-Widget-2/

More about the various options can be found here http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=multilingualcontent recommend you give it a read first.

I am trying to implement a form for newsletter signup and want to change the word submit (what the site visitor sees, not logged in users) on the submit button into German. Where do I do this?
