    In the last PhpWiki version (1.3.3?) read the index.php3
    and find the variable $lang=.... How to start your Wiki
    without reading this configure file?... In the older
    version you might find that in a conf.php or a such file
    name.

    The way to choose an other language than English is
    correctly commented and very simple for (italian, rfench,
    german, ...). In the 'locale' folder you can find
    instruction texts about how to create new translation files
    (for not common languages).

    My own problem: Why my Wiki does not react to my french
    configuration ($lang='fr' or 'fr_FR'). The initial french
    WikiPages where created, but I fall ever on that so english
    HomePage and all the english cosmetic words (Edit,
    search...) ;-((

    I am also having problems in changing the default language to
    anything besides English. I am using 1.3.6 and index.php
    contains a line that I used to set the default language to
    german: if (!defined('DEFAULT_LANGUAGE'))
    define('DEFAULT_LANGUAGE', 'de');

    Indeed, this change does not take effect on any of the pages.

    If anyone has a hint for me...
