    Hi I added a language to my shop and also added the language PHP file. 90% of the store is now showing the installed language (dutch), however, some parts still show english language, even if I turn off the english language module. What can I do?

    Open Prestashop administration panel, go to Tools > Translations and using the Modify Translations section check the the translations available. It seems that your language pack misses some translations. You’ll need to finish your store translation manually.
