Telligent Community supports translating the majority of the text rendered by the platform. User-generated content, however, is not supported for translation.
A new language can be enabled by copying an existing language. Telligent Community is provided with text for US English, so the following steps use that as the base language:
<language name="Français" key="fr-FR" isRightToLeft="false" />
