  • Slovenian Lanugage Pack Added to Joomla! 3.5

    Joomla! Slovenian

    Slovenian joins the officially released language packs for Joomla!, an award winning Content Management System (CMS). The Joomla Translations Working Group has accredited Slovenian as an official language pack for Joomla 3.5. With the addition of the Slovenian language, Joomla websites can now be published in 65 languages spoken around the world. These language packs come handy when developing both monolingual and multilingual sites using Joomla!

    The users can now choose Slovenian as the language of their choice for the installation of Joomla! In addition, Slovenian can be used as the default back-end administration language and front-end site language. With this language pack, users will see the Joomla labels and messages in the Slovenian language. The language pack can be installed using the feature Install Languages or just like installing any other Joomla extension. If a user wants to customise any label or message, it can be done easily using language override for Slovenian.

    Thanks to the dedicated efforts of Sretko Devič who has created the Slovenian language pack. The information about the Slovenian language pack is available at

    The aim of the Joomla Translations Working Group’s Localisation Project is to continuously strive to provide an up-to-date translation of core Joomla into various languages. This is a significant project, and requires around ten thousand phrases to be translated. The current list of language packs for Joomla! 3 is available at
