By default, MyBB uses English as its default language, but you can download and install other languages, such as Spanish or Chinese, for example. To download a language pack, browse MyBB’s official site for language packs at http://community.mybb.com/mods.php?action=browse&category=19

To install a language pack, follow these steps:
