    With the Multi-Language feature, you have to manually translate the text in the wizard when you add a language. The system will only translate some of the texts that are in the database but most of it should be translated manually. After that, save the translation and you're good to go.

    First off, I suggest removing the language integration first so you can manually translate them.

    Here's how:

    Click Preferences > General  tab > Click Add button on Languages > Click Remove button

    After that, add the languages you want so you can manually translate them.

    Once you click Edit for that language, a new window would open for manual translation.

    Hope this information helps!
