Change the language of my wordpress (7 posts)

    I have recently installed wordpress in normal English but now I want to change the english language into Kurdish (http://ku.wordpress.org/). Since I do not want to reinstall wordpress because I have done quite some work on it. My reason for changing the language is because the text aligned to the left (ltr) and kurdish has to be from right to left (rtl). I have heard something that you can change ltr to rtl in style.css or something but haven't found it yet. If anyone knows how to change ltr to rtl I dont mind translating some english to kurdish. And anyone know how to change the language totally from english to kurdish without reinstalling wordpress, because I can only see the fresh install on the kurdish wordpress page http://ku.wordpress.org/.

    Anyway my website is http://asinger.cz.cc/

    Hope you know any solutions. Thanks for your effort

    you need the translation files from the kurdish download. put them in the wp-content/languages folder.

    you should then be able to change the language under your site settings.

    I have tried to put the .mo file and .po file in wp-content/languages/ but there was no language directory over there so I had to make one. When I look at setting I can't change the language and there is no switch. I am using 3.1.3 maybe there are other methods?

    [No bumping, please.]

    the screenshot doesn't load.

    anyway on my site the language setting is under the General settings. right above the Save Changes button is a drop down list for Site Language.

    or you could try the instructions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress_in_Your_Language
