    OK, great. Just follow these steps very carefully.

    • Unzip the attached file to get “en_US.php”.
    • Create a new folder as a subfolder of kiwitrees/data/ on your server, call it “language”, and put this file in there.

    • In kiwitrees go to Administration > Clean up data folder.
    • Tick “cache” and then ‘Delete”.
    • Now go back to the front end of your site [any page as long as it has dates on it] and refresh the page.

All language strings are held in cache to speed up the system.
