  34. Clear Magento cache and open the front page of your site. Select the new language from the language box.
  35. You template may have custom CMS blocks that you will need to re-create for the new language layout. Go to CMS -> Static Blocks -> Add New Block and re-create the exiting custom blocks like Footer Links, Footer list 1, Footer list 2, Custom tab, header-links etc (depending on your theme). The code can be taken from the existing blocks and changed manually.
  36. To avoid the ‘___from_store’ query string from the urls when you switch a different language, in /app/design/frontend/default/template/page/switch/languages.phtml find line 41 and change it from:
  37. echo $_lang->getCurrentUrl() 
    

    To:

    echo $_lang->getCurrentUrl(false) 
    

    Then go to System -> Configuration -> General -> Web in your Magento admin. Then Options -> Add Store Code to Urls -> Yes.
