Modify the interface language

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

If you want to change the language, follow these steps:

  • Download your language translation from (for Joomla! 3.x).
  • Go to “Extensions -> Manage -> Install” in the administration panel and upload the package.
  • Go to “Extensions -> Languages -> Installed” and set the newly-installed language as the default for the Site and for the Administration panel.
