 Translating ADefHelpDesk to display in different languages (localization)

Displaying ADefHelpDesk in different languages for your users

First, check the download page on ADefHelpDesk.com to see if there are already "language packs" available for the language and version of ADefHelpDesk that you are running. You will be able to simply upload the language pack rather than creating the translation yourself.

This example uses DotNetNuke version 04.09.04.

Create Translations

The first step is to install ADefHelpDesk as you normally would.

Enter translations and click Update at the bottom of the page.

When your users visit your site, they will now see flags that they can click on to see your DotNetNuke site in the language of their choice.
