Hi There,
I would like to show you how to add new language and translate the phrases through Flynax Admin Panel.

Add New Languages instruction

2. Click on "Add Language" button
3. Add Listing form has been appeared, there are four simple field inside the form:
- Name (New language name)
- ISO code (new language code, for example: en for English)
- Date format (format of displaying date: see details here (http://support.flynax.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=23))
- Copy from (choose the parent language, so system will copy all phrases from that language)
4. Click on "Add" button, well new language has been added.

Translate Phrases instruction
1. Go to Admin Panel > Languages
2. Click on "Manage Phrases" button of necessary language
3. Language phrases list has been appeared, grid has pagination that allow you to browse phrases page by page
4. To translate the phrases just click on phrases value, editable field with current value has been appeared
5. Type new translated value to the field and press CTRL+F5 or just defocus the field

NOTICE: some phrases has the following variables inside the text: [some_text] or {some_text}, you should NOT translate this variables, for example:
Phrase text: Click {here} to add new Listing
You should NOT translate the "{here}" in this case.

Also you may use Search Form to find some phrase and translate it, for example:
You wish to translate the Header Slogan: "Find your dream house today!"
in this case you should:
1. Go to Admin Panel > Languages
2. Click on "Search" button
3. In appeared form insert the phrases which needs to find and search by phrase text

Also you may just translate some data via managers, for example:
To translate some block title to new language you should:
1. Go to Admin Panel > Blocks
2. Click on "Edit" button of necessary block
3. In appeared form you may see new languages fields for name, title, content etc.
They have Parent language values now, well you should just translate them and click "Edit"

As you can see, it is easy to translate the software into the new language.
I would be glad to assist you if you have any questions.

Bye Bye
