Single Site Language Change

I try the first steps with Kirby3, especially with the starterkit. It is perfect.
My problem is to switch the default language for a single site without a multi language approach. My searches here shows some answers and my locale setting looks like:

return [
‘debug’ => true,
‘locale’ => ‘de_DE.utf-8’

But no effect. Date information with:

toDate(‘d F Y’)

shows furthermore December instead Dezember (in german).

Any help for me?


If you want to get the date in your language, you have to switch the date handler to strftime in your config.

And use the strftime date formatting syntax afterwards: PHP: strftime - Manual

Thank you. It works. And it is described in the docs (Asche über mein Haupt).
