5.5 in other languages?

I'm desperate. Maybe I'm just incompatible with this website, but I never seem to find the answers to urgent and obvious questions, like that one:

How do I get at least a german backend if not a multilingual site in 5.5?
This MUST have been an issue/question before today. I can't find anything in the docs nor in the forums... Isn't this one of the obvious things one should inform the community with such a big change? Am I simply too stupid to find it?

Any help is highly appreciated.

I just had the same problem, because the infos on the download page are somehow a little bit confusing, so I wrote a how-to:


Worked for me (german as well), if you have any questions let me know.

Thanks a lot (in English for others as well). That helped me set it up - I thought this procedure has gone somewhen between 5.3 and 5.4... anyway the multilingual add-on seems not to be compatibel yet. Are there somewhere informations from the core team about (near) future plans regarding this topic?...

Can I help translating the rest of the interface? As I can see a lot is still missing and that is even more confusiong for customers to use as to leave it in english.

I just got accepted at mygengo as translator yesterday by the c5 team. I asked in the internationalization forum who's on board to translate 5.5.1 and wants to discuss some major terms:

I don't know if the guys athttp://www.concrete5-cms.de are working on it as well on myGengo. I wanted to ask them today but you have to be activated on their forum by an administrator (d'oh).

What do you mean with the multilingual add-on?

If you do mean internalization add-on, there is a beta available for testing with 5.5:

I had a short presentation today and my customer did not notice on first sight, that there is german-english mix in the dashboard. So good luck with your customer! ;)
