Did you go to the ACP -> System -> Language packs and install it?

Go to the ACP -> System -> Language packs and install it.

After that, you have two choices, change the default language to Portuguese ir whatever you want the default language to be, so when someone visitis your forum it appears in the default language, or let users control their default language individually through their UCP, or choose the language they want when they register.

The change is not 'automatic'.

Set it on the Board Settings page of the admin panel. Any users using a different language will have to switch to it manually in their profiles.

Hi there

My board runs in Russian language as default.

I wonder if I can add some kind of button, so if let's say an English speaking visitor comes, all he will have to do is to click on "English" button which should change interface into English.

Is that possible?
