Locale Settings

From the Configuration menu, click Localization → Locale Settings

A locale is basically a language. Each locale you add allows your customers to view the site in another language. Please see here for more information on localization.

From this page, you can create new locales with the 'Add New' button, or 'Edit' or 'Delete' an existing locale.

Adding a Locale

To create a new locale, click the 'Add New' button and fill in the necessary fields.

NOTE: If your locale is going to use a different currency than USD, make sure that the currency is published before creating the new locale. See here for details on doing that.
