Bengali Language Pack Added to Joomla! 3.8

Bengali joins the officially released language packs for Joomla!, an award-winning Content Management System (CMS).

The Joomla! Translations Working Group has accredited Bengali as an official language pack for Joomla! 3.8. With the addition of the Bengali language, Joomla websites can now be published in 74 languages spoken around the world. These language packs come handy when developing both monolingual and multilingual sites using Joomla.

The users can now choose Bengali as the language of their choice for the installation of Joomla. In addition, Bengali can be used as the default back-end administration language and front-end site language. With this language pack, users will see the Joomla labels and messages in the Bengali language. The language pack can be installed using the feature Install Languages or just like installing any other Joomla extension. If a user wants to customise any label or message, it can be done easily using language override for Bengali.

Thanks to the dedicated efforts of Ashikur Rahman. the information about the Bengali language pack is available at
