Translating the user interface

Default Language

The availableLanguages are defined in Packages/Application/Neos.Neos/Configuration/Settings.yaml.

You may override the default language of your installation in Configuration/Settings.yaml:

Neos:
  Neos:
    userInterface:
      defaultLanguage: 'en'

Label Scrambling

To help you find labels in the Neos editor interface that you still need to translate, you can use the language label scrambling setting in your yaml file. This will replace all translations by a string consisting of only # characters with the same length as the actual translated label. With this setting enabled every still readable string in the backend is either content or non-translated.

Neos:
  Neos:
    userInterface:
      scrambleTranslatedLabels: TRUE

Note

The translation labels used in the javascript ui are parsed to a big json file. While changing xliff files this cached should be flushed, but still it can turn out useful to disable this cache. You can do so by using the following snippet in your Caches.yaml

Neos_Neos_XliffToJsonTranslations:
  backend: Neos\Flow\Cache\Backend\NullBackend
