Multilingual set up of the Data Portal

Providing translations in an additional language for the dataportal module

see #5911

Configuration of Dataportal drupal site for multilanguage support

1) Install the required modules

see #5913 for further details, with the following command the modules are downloaded and installed (first download and then install would be drush dl ... and afterwards drush en ...)

drush -l {site-url} en languageicons i18n i18n_menu i18n_node i18n_string i18n_translation i18n_variable l10n_update

Afterwards the modules should be available in the dataportal where they can be activated:

and the additional language needs to be added:

Home » Administration » Configuration » Regional and language » Languages

-> Add Language

Define which language should be the default language.


The files (for example cdm_dataportal.es-po) for translations can be found in portal code under modul/cdm_dataportal/translations/

In this folder there is also a note on automatic installation of translations (README):

The translations can be named as $langcode.po or with names ending with $langcode.po.

Translations are only automatically imported during the installation of the module for
all the languages already set up on the site,
see https://api.drupal.org/api/drupal/includes!locale.inc/function/locale_batch_by_component/8.x for details.

If the module is already enabled you need to disable and re-enable it. Alternatively you can use the following drush command:

drush php-eval "locale_system_update(array('yourmodule_name'));drush_backend_batch_process();"

2) Multilingual menus

...

3) Download and install Drupal-Core translations

  • go to https://localize.drupal.org/download and download the Drual 7 translation package for desired language
  • Import the language via the settings page at admin/config/regional/translate/import. Make sure you have selected the correct target language before clicking on "Import"
