I've got a multisite which I installed in Dutch.
Therefore English and Dutch are available in the general settings tab.
But I need to add German and French.
I can't select any other language from the drop down.

And if I add a language in the wp-config.php it just gives a notice without any direction.

Of course I googled but I can't seem to find anything useful.

How can I active an other language and download the .PO/.MO files?


So what should do is head over to https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp/dev

And download the language .mo files, and copy them to your wp-content/languages/ folder.

This should allow you to select other languages.

  • Where can I download? I don't see a link to a .mo or any files. – janw Oct 30 '14 at 13:26
  • I see it now Below is an export – janw Oct 30 '14 at 13:28
  • Now I see have DE and can select it from the dropdown but I still miss a lot and the updater does not see anything missing even after forcing it to check. – janw Oct 30 '14 at 13:31
