    Using Multilingual Content in SilverStripe 2.4 Link to this post

    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 http://doc.silverstripe.org/multilingualcontent, 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
    Translatable::set_default_locale("de_DE");

    // 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');
    Translatable::set_default_locale("de_DE");
    Translatable::set_allowed_locales(array(
       "de_DE",
       "en_GB"
    ));

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