Enable Multiple Languages on Varbase Installation

Choose the language of installation and default website language on the first step of installing Varbase

Varbase gave the option of enabling multiple language options on the multilingual configuration installation step.

This will enable the necessary modules for a multilingual website.

Enabling multiple languages for the site right from the installation step is the best option for multilingual websites.

Configurations that are related to languages will take effect on install. And after the install of any extra or external components.

In case of not selecting the option on install. some issues will start to show up.


  • The language field at the form display and field display will not be placed in the default Varbase standard order and position.

  • Manual fixes are needed for newly activated translatable content types. In order not to face language issues.

  • Manual changes are needed for custom views. In order to manage multilingual filtering of contents.
