Re: How to install language packs?

A language pack contains translation files for different text content on your Magento 2 website. E.g.: translation files for standard phrases and email templates, full translations for Community and Enterprise editions. 

Step 1: Install the Language pack on Magento 2

Install the language pack you have chosen from Component Manager.

Step 2: Create a Store View for the language you need

  • Go to the Admin Panel> Stores> Settings> All Stores:


  • Click the ‘Create Store View’ button and then make the next settings:


  • Save the Store View.

Step 3: Change the Locale of the Store View

  • Go to the Admin Panel> Stores> Configuration> General> Locale Options:


  • Choose the language you need, clear the ‘Use Website’ checkbox after the Locale field and click the ‘Save Config’ button.
