Hi there,
Working for a week now with SS and so far: love it!

I have a question about multi language sites. I managed to default the CMS to dutch.
But the site I'm working on is default dutch (nl_NL).
The system however is en_EN and I can add only dutch as "translated pages". Is there a way to make nl_NL my default and to add English as a translation?

I hope I explained my problem clearly ... :)

Thanks in advance

@ozzi/guillem: you can configure the default website language by setting
i18n::set_default_lang('de'); // for german
i've updated the wiki:

@pasquale: a new page doesn't have all translated languages by default, you have to explicitly create them for each page.
