Creating "new" language


I would like to create a new language on Freepbx.
Is there a list of files needed? And any things I should know about it?

Thank you comtech.
Do you know where I can find a list of all the soundfiles needed?
Or how to download an existing language to my computer?

Right in the linked instructions:
go to /var/lib/asterisk/sounds, you will see a directory with the name of the language code you entered earlier. *In our example we see “pi” for “Pirate” in addition to the built-in English (en), Spanish (es), and French (fr) language packs on our system.

You can login and grab them all in one go. The instructions also have a picture about downloading voice prompts, one at a time, in the web GUI.

You should also find a couple of *.txt files in the ‘en’ directory of which the format is

basename without extension of file: English text content
