The Kunena installation package contains support only for English language forums but other languages may be separately downloaded and installed. This guide shows you how to install other languages. When you upgrade from one version to a different version you should also remember that you will need to separately download and upgrade all other languages you may be using on your site.
The Kunena installation package contains support only for English language forums but other languages may be separately downloaded and installed. Translating Kunena is managed as part of the Transifex project. The download page contains the additional languages pack, which includes all translated languages, both complete and incomplete.
Our official language pack can be found in our download page. Some languages may have been fully translated but they are included anyway. Incomplete translations may result in untranslated strings appearing as
COM_KUNENA_THIS_IS_THE_KEY. So if you start seeing strings like this, your translation isn’t up to date and Kunena is using the last-known translation that you have installed on your site.
Install the language pack with the Joomla! installer. All the available languages will be updated during the installation process. If you add more languages into your site, you need to install the language pack again to include missing languages.
Translated Kunena showing untranslated menu. You will notice that, although the forum is translated into your language, the menu at the top of the page is not translated. This may or may not occur in your particular site but it is easy enough to translate the menu items by going to the Joomla Menus, select the menu Kunena Menu and translate each item manually, one by one.
Many of the languages in this package are missing translations. If you think you can complete the remaining parts of a translation, or you could write a translation that has not yet been written for Kunena, the Kunena translation team invites you to participate in the Transifex project. If you have the skills and you would like to help, please look at the Transifex article to see how you can help us with our translation work.
