Install New Languages In Magento 2

In Magento, the default language is English. So the question now is: Can we add new languages for our Magento site?

Of course, it’s a Yes. Just pick the desired language for your site and follow this step-by-step procedure.

Step 1: Installing a new language package

First, locate your desire language package. Here are some language packs in case you are looking for them.

  • German:
  • Dutch:
  • France:

After that, get the composer key of the package such as splendidinternet/mage2-locale-de-de, which is the key for the German package.

Then, go to your magento2 directory and run this command in the terminal:

          composer require splendidinternet/mage2-locale-de-de   (add the composer key behind require)

Finally, upgrade your store and then deploy the new content:

          bin/magento setup:upgrade

          bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy de_DE  (after deploy is the locale tag of the language)

install new language in Magento 2 deploy

Step 2: Configuration

After finished installing the language package, go to your Magento admin site.

Follow this direction: Stores -> Configuration -> General -> Locale Options then Select the language you just installed, or in our case – German (Germany) from the drop-down.
