MS-5.14: Add Language


Scope of this “Add Language” page covers functionality to add name of the language to appear in the list of available languages, putting forward language code to get the appropriate language file called from the database. Before we discuss “Add Language” page, let’s first learn how different languages actually work.

MumaraSMS offers a multilingual platform with an ability to translate field labels, options, page descriptions, help notes and titles, into the language of your choice. Upon installation, you can access the language file to download, translate into the preferred language and upload to make it work. The path to access the language file to translate is the following.

You will download the file in default English language and will translate it to the language of your choice. Once you done translating the language file, you will need to upload and put this file into the folder specific for the newly translated language. The folder name where you put in the translated file should be the same short identifier/classifier that you provide in “Language Code” field. 

Following area discusses both of the fields on “Add Language” page that would help you understand the process more closely.


Navigate to Add Language

Admin Main Navigation->Setup->Languages ->Add Language


Language (Text Field)


Name of the language here, i.e. French, Dutch etc. The name that you put in this field will start appearing in the list of available languages under “Select Language” on the top right area of admin as well as the client side of the dashboard. Selecting any of the language from the list will translate the labels, descriptions, help notes and titles into the selected language.

But make sure you already did the translation work and have uploaded the required version in the language folder, as mentioned above. System not being able to locate the specific file with the translation will load the Default English language.


Language Code (Text Field)


You need to fill this field with the short language classifier/ identifier that usually is combination of two or three letters, like en for English, da for Danish etc.

Also the name of the folder where you put in the file carrying the translation has to be the same short code in order to choose the correct file of translation. Like if you put fr for French language here in this field, the folder where you put the file carry the translation should also be the fr. See the following path.
