The default theme for PrestaShop features an image slider. You can edit that slider by configuring the "Image slider for your homepage" module, which can be found in the "Modules" page of the back - office.
The default theme also features a block containing featured products. The products displayed are the ones which are associated with the home-page along with their default category (see the question above). This slider is managed using the "Featured Products on the homepage" module, which can be found in the "Modules" page of the back - office. You can remove the slider from the homepage by uninstalling the module, or you can set the number of products to be displayed by configuring the module (click the "Configure" button for the module in the "Modules" page).
Some themes feature a default text on the homepage. This text is often managed by the "Home text editor" module, which can be found in the "Modules" page of the back - office. You can remove the text from the homepage by uninstalling the module, or you can set the content of the text (including its static image) by configuring the module (click the "Configure" button for the module in the "Modules" page).
- Go to your PrestaShop back - office, in the "Localization" menu, and its "Languages" page.
- Add a new language: click the "Add" button on the top right of the table. Fill in the various fields:
- The name must be clearly labeled: English, French, Danish, Chinese... Make sure to use the correct language name, and write it fully.
- The ISO code must be from the ISO 636-1 list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ISO_639-1_codes. Be very precise: the system will check whether a language pack already exists for that ISO code
- PrestaShop uses FamFamFam's flag set, which you can download here: http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/flags/.
- Don’t forget to activate the language.
- Save your changes.
- In order to help you get started with the translation, you must copy the strings from the another installed language to your own:
- Go to the "Translations" page of the "Localization" menu.
- In the "Copy" section: use the default language along with the default theme in the "From" fields, and your new language along with its theme in the "To" field.
- Then you can start translating:
- Go to the "Modify translations" section at the top of the "Translations" page.
- Choose "Front Office Translations" in the drop-down list, then click on the flag of your new language.
- Start translating the fields.
- Click "Save the modifications" once it all seems correct to you.
- Repeat this step for each type of translation (back - office, modules, etc.).
- Your own language is now totally translated! Test, test, test! Have your friends test it too!
