Prestashop is multi language, multi-currency and allows you to setup your online web store regardless from which country you are operating. Country, currencies, language and time zone are better known as localization. In a previous Prestashop tutorial, we have described how to manage and add new languages to your retail website. In this article, let see here and how you can configure them from the Prestashop 1.6 administration backend.
Connect to your Prestashop dashboard and from the vertical menu, navigate to:
Localization > Localization
Scroll down on the page until you reach the form.
You can update other parameters like the default country and the default currency.
For the sake of showing a real life example, in the picture, you chose respectively:
English, United Kingdom and Pound.
You could do English, USA, and Dollar. You get the picture.
Click on the drop down list to select the right language then hit the button Save in the right corner.

You will select a language from the list of languages already available in your shop. You can manage the languages at Interntional > Localization > Languages.
