Virtuemart products don't change language with joomfish

Posted on 2009-12-16
Last Modified: 2012-05-08

I am a newbie in Joomla. I am using Joomla 1.5.6 with Joomfish V2.0.4  and Virtuemart VirtueMart 1.1.3. on my site

I wanted my site to be in 5 languages(English, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian). I got the language pack for all but Indonesian language for virtuemart.

As I translated the text and products' name and description in different languages I got everything working but the products' names appear in english in listing but appear in selected language where the description appears.

Please tell me if I am doing something wrong and where can I get Indonesian language file for virtuemart.

Thanks in advance

    Since we all know, that having a multilingual VM is not as "friendly", here is a post that helped me.
    It worked great for me. :

    About the indonesian language, maybe this can help:

    Thanks for your time.
    I have already tried all these steps as I found them on a different site but all in vain.
    The same problem still persists. When we select the category and reach the product listing page the names of products appear in English only but when we reach product description page the product name starts appearing in selected language. In back end everything is translated in all the languages I want.

    Please I really need help.
