It is important to generate a full backup of your Drupal website before any new installations or major changes on it. This way, if something goes wrong with your website, you will always have a working copy that can be restored. This is a good practice, which will allow you to edit and manage your Drupal installation without worrying that it may get corrupted.
It is recommended to create Drupal backup, before making major changes on your website. This allows you to restore it to a fully operational state if something goes wrong.
If you would like to create a multi-lingual website with Drupal, there is an easy way to achieve that.
Log into your website as administrator and access the Modules tab from the main menu.
Locate the Locale module and check it.
Scroll down to the bottom and click on the Save configuration button.
Click on the Configuration tab from the main menu.
Scroll down to the Regional and Language section and select Languages.
Click on the Add language button and select the one that you would like to add from the drop-down box. When you are ready, simply click on the Add language button.
You need to download the Drupal translation into the language you wish to enable on your website. You can check the available translation via the official website of the product. There is a Drupal Translations section on the website and you will be able to search for one that you need.
Now, navigate to the Configuration tab from the main menu and locate the Regional and Language section and click on the Translate Interface.
Select the Import tab.
Edit the following options:
Click on the Import button to initiate the process.
Click on the Configuration tab from the main menu and locate the Regional and Language section and click on the Languages option.
