  1. I don’t think English will be surpassed as the most popular choice in our lifetime. It’s the defacto mutual language internationally, so anyone wanting to reach a global audience will typically default to using it.

  2. ..I still don’t understand why WordPress is not multi-language by default, instead they waste time to add ML to installation…

  4. Many CMS are already multilingual. WordPress should add multilingual functionality by default.

    1. Olaska, WPLANG is no longer needed so it’s removed. You can change your site language under Settings >> General.

  6. I see only English (United States) and pl_PL (this language pack was present in 3.9.2 before upgrade to 4.0) options in language select. It looks like the language pack must be downloaded before trying to select this particular language… for example I’ve downloaded de_DE package and it showed in language select. Andrew Nacin wrote:

    Am I missing something?
