I changed my default language in in nl_NL:


I added a second language file in called nl_NL.php and translated the strings into Dutch, zo the lines look like this:

$lang['nl_NL']['']['HEADLINE'] = 'Winkelwagen';

But the frontend of the webshop does not use the dutch language file, but does show the metatag:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="nl-NL"/>

Even the ?flush=1 does not change anything.

Wicht steps do I need to take to let the ecommercemodule use the Dutch language file?
