WordPress Question: Controlling Language Settings in WordPress Multisite

WordPress Question: Controlling Language Settings in WordPress Multisite

How to change the language in WordPress MultisiteDuring our WordPress Q & A session last week, we had several people mention difficulties with changing the language in WordPress Multisite.

This one was such question, from a WPMU reader named Tagit:

I followed all the instructions in the WordPress codex, to switch my Multisite install from English to Hebrew.

wp-config, downloaded he_IL.mo etc…

Hebrew works fine in the subdomains of my site, but I still can’t write Hebrew characters on my main site. The characters just render as question marks, like ????

Can anyone suggest a way to fix this?

Also, if there’s a way to switch the dashboard language to Hebrew, that would be a great help too. Since I’m not a developer I don’t know what the problem is or how to solve it.

Thank you very much!
