I'm trying to add a new translation to an existing site. The version is 2.4.2, so it should be no problem. I read this doc, but I'm not getting it running :-(

What I made so far is adding this to mysite/_config.php:

// Set default locale to german / Germany

// Enable multilingual content
Object::add_extension('SiteTree', 'Translatable');
Object::add_extension('SiteConfig', 'Translatable');

After that I did rebuild my database with /dev/build/?flush=1, but nothing changed in the backend.

What did I forget? Thanks for help in advance!

try having this in your _config.php...

Object::add_extension('SiteTree', 'Translatable');

Also this is a nice way to add the flags (to switch languages)...
