1. Polish Language Translation For WHMCS files may be edited and updated according to your needs.

It is advised to use a copy of the file to avoid overwriting your changes when an updated version is uploaded. You can also use Overrides for strings customizations.

2. Translation files do not cover email templates, reports and widgets translations as these are not included in the original english.php file.

If needed, they must be edited and translated directly in the system.

3. The content of Polish language translation files has been extended with commented out, original lines in English.

The original versions have been added to facilitate the process of introducing any changes in the translation.

4. Thanks to the 'Easy Translation' feature built into WHMCS, you can translate the names and descriptions of your products, groups, support departments or custom fields.

Due to specific functionality of this WHMCS feature, we recommend setting the 'Default Language', in 'Setup' → 'General Settings' → 'Localisation', to the English language for the time of performing the translation.
After you have prepared your own translations, you can change it back to Polish if you want it to be used by default in the system.
This way you can avoid inconsistency when switching from one language to another later on.

Common Problems

1. Please be assured that all existing language strings have been translated. Despite that, there might be places in your WHMCS where some lines appear in English.
That might be due to single deficiencies in original WHMCS language files, used template or other WHMCS settings. In such cases, please contact WHMCS team and report the issues.
2. There are single translation lines which are used in more than one place in the system. Due to the complexity of polish language, their translation might not be perfectly suitable in all situations.
3. The translation has been prepared for WHMCS V7.7.1. Despite that fact, it can be safely used with any other version, even WHMCS V5.

Yet, in such a situation you must be aware that some records translations might be missing as WHMCS deleted numerous no longer used lines.
All such missing records can be easily translated on your own, for example, using Overrides.

4. When using the Lagom theme, the client area may contain untranslated phrases in the form of function names (e.g. generals.my_dashboard, etc.).
This problem is caused by the lack of built-in support for the Polish language in the Lagom theme, which uses its own additional translations.

To fix this, you should add the missing phrases to this theme on your own using the method described here.

5. If you encounter a problem with encoding Polish characters in PDF invoices, check your font selection in 'Setup' → 'General Settings' → 'Invoices'.

By default, the selected PDF font family 'Helvetica' does not support Polish encoding. We recommend using 'Dejavusans', 'Freesans', or your custom font.
