How to Access

Select ComponentsKM FasTrans → Installed Admin Languages from the drop-down menu on the back-end of your Joomla! installation or click the icon Installed Admin Languages in the control panel.


The KM FasTrans: Installed Administrator Languages allows you to make the same functions as the Joomla Language Manager Installed - Administrator screen. This is here only for ease and convenience. It also allows you to manage Language Permissions from KM FasTrans Permissions.

Quick Tips

    • Users can use any Language from the list of installed Languages, either by having it assigned in the User Manager or by filling out a Menu Item Manager - New/Edit - User Form Layout at the Front end. This will cause the Joomla! system prompts to be generated in this Language just for this User. For example, if a User chooses Spanish as their language, then the Search Module will show with prompts in Spanish.
    • This User's choice is not affected by the Default Language set for the Front-end.
    • Changing a User's Language or the Default Language does not affect the web site's Articles and other content.
    • Important: Do not delete the default language files (for example, with FTP). This will create errors on both the Front-end and Back-end.
