It's time to create new or re-design your websites to bring it to the next level.
Translate is an important part of the website-localization process, like other templates, Helix include .ini file, this file contains all of the English terms.
Helix Ultimate is produced the English language file only (en-GB.tpl_shaper_helixultimate.ini). Other languages were made by Joomla community.
But you should translate only single file: language\en-GB\en-GB.tpl_shaper_helixultimate.ini
So don’t worry!
Translate all or selected strings to your language and save them as with native language prefix. Remember that each translated string must be enclosed by double quotes.
Then you have to change the filename from: en-GB.tpl_shaper_helixultimate.ini to: xx-XX.tpl_shaper_helixultimate.ini
Where xx-XX is a LANG-PREFIX, for example, es-ES – for Spanish (Español), nl-NL – for Dutch etc.
File (.ini) must be saved as UTF-8 without BOM encoding. When the phrases inside file have been translated, you can copy your language file into your language directory using an FTP client.
