     If there's no tag present the text can't be changed via 3 Tier Language Pack.

    After language is selected, change option to download from the dropdown menu.

    Download starts automatically.


4. Open the downloaded CSV in notepad++ (DO NOT open in excel as excel cannot handle all UTF-8 Unicode languages).



5. Open a new page on notepad++. In the first line include "Key","locale of the Tier 2 language pack"

    On every subsequent line include "name of key","text you wish to have"

    Save the file in the csv format.
