On my previous “developing cakephp multilingual website” article I as advising you to do a management for languages db table for site administrator, It seems a lot of readers do not understand what will be the management I am asking to write. Sorry for that, Now I am attaching a zip file to show what to do with “do a management for languages db table for site administrator”, It has 2 screenshot, 1 controller, 1 model of language table and view files for a sample.

There are a lot of extra codes on view files which is required for my projects, You just advised to follow the steps or structures.

Merry Christmas to all
