CRM Language

Create New Language

In Pixie CRM you can easily change the language. You only need to translate all the strings based on your needs.

  1. Navigate to application/language and copy the default english folder.
  2. Rename the folder in the language you want to translate. eq. french

You must rename the files inside the folder you copied based on the main folder name eq. we renamed our new folder to french and in this folder, there are 2 files, english_lang.php and english_num_words_lang.php that should be renamed like this: french_lang.php and french_num_words_lang.php

Translate all the strings via your favorite code editor and navigate to Setup -> Settings -> Localization you will see that your language is available in the dropdown to select it and save changes.

If the language you are trying to translate already exists in Pixie CRM files that come with the package its recommended to rename the folder/files eq. my_french and my_french_lang.php

If you are using language that don’t exist in Pixie CRM make sure after each update to copy all the new text after # Version X.X.X from the original English file located in application/language/english/english_lang.php

Overwriting translation texts

Language files in Pixie CRM use the UTF-8 encoding without a Byte Order Marker, when creating language override files it is important to maintain the same encoding.


All the language files are available on Github, if you wan’t to contribute translation you can create pull request and we will review the language and approve the pull request. 

Special Charachters

If you want to use the ‘ character in your translation text you have to replace it with \’


$lang['language_text_key'] = 'Text with \'quotes';
