# Getting Started

# Installation

  1. Download the package from the ZOOlanders Site.
  2. In your site go to Joomla! Extension Manager and use the Upload Package File option to upload and install the downloaded package.

If you have issues with the installation try the alternative Install from Directory method. Upload the unzipped package content into the /tmp folder, input the folder path and click on the Install button.


If your site is multilingual or the main language is not English, you may want to install the INI translation files for each language. Similarly as above, download and install the translation packages.

# Translation

You may want to install as well the INI translation files for all the languages your site should support. Similarly as in the previous section, download the required translation packages and install them using the Joomla! Extension Manager.

Alternatively you can upload the files manually into the administrator/language/{LANGUAGE} folder.

# Integration

Now that ZOOlingual is installed a new section under the namespace zoolingual will be available in the configuration of every element.

For elements with language specific content, like text or textarea, create as many copies as languages are in your site and specify to each one a language. Make sure to assign all of them to the same positions and customize the rendering if required.

For elements which values are universal, like numbers or dates, keep only one element and no languages assigned. On the layouts positions, though, assign the same element multiple times, one for each language, set the language and customize the rendering.

Repeat the process for each App and Type where translations are required.

If the language settings are missing, make sure the ZOOlingual Plugin is enabled.
