In the field "new language" enter the iso code for the language that you want to create, e.g. "de" for german or "fr" for french. The iso code shall be lower case. Then click on the "Create new language file set" button at the bottom of the page.

To export a language file set,  login into ISPConfig as admin user, click on "System" in the upper menu and then on "Languages" > "Export" in the left menu. Select the language that shall be exported and download the language file.

If you like to contribute your translation to the ispconfig project, please send the exported language file by email to dev [at] ispconfig [dot] org
