Login to your Pimcore administrator dashboard and click on Setting >> System Settings.

We shall cover 2 settings in this tutorial which is the General settings and Localization & Internationalization.

For General settings, please read the following carefully:

Timezone – here you can configure the timezone you would like your Pimcore application to use.
View Suffix – here you can configure the suffix of the view files your Pimcore application will be using. The available suffixes are .php which is the standard extension and the phtml which is Zend Framework standard extension. Please use the one which is most suitable for you.
Additional $PATH variable – Insert /usr/local/bin/php.
Default-Language in Admin-Interface – The default language which should be used for the Admin area.
URL to custom image for the login screen – here you can specify any custom image you would like to have displayed on the login screen of the admin area. Leave this untouched if you want to use the default Pimcore image logo.
Turn off anonymous usage submissions – By default all the data your application submits to the developers of Pimcore is submitted absolutely anonymously. If you would like this disabled please check this option.

Once you are done with the configuration of these options please use the Save button which can be found at the bottom right corner of the page.

Now we shall focus on Localization & Internationalization section. Here you will be able to specify the content language for different type of components on your website.

In our example, we shall include Malay (Malaysia) ms_MY by typing Malay and click once on Malay (Malaysia) ms_MY as seen below.

Press the (+) button to Add Language. The default language is English (as seen above in the screenshot), however you can add as many as other languages you would like to and then to even import the language CSV file if you need to.

You will notice how the newly added language will appear as a separate smaller section just below that list and there you will be also able to specify the CSV file for that localization.

In our example, you can see we've added Chinese, Malay and English.

Once you are ready with these changes please click on the Save button located at the bottom of the page so you can be able to save the performed changes.
