Translate to polish language:

This is very interesting part, please note that alfresco latest model ie 5.0. version will not allow to translate foreign language which is not present in language selection.

Get the language pack from the following url:

Download two jars using links above;
Copy these files to tomcat/shared/lib folder under your Alfresco installation directory;
Restart Alfresco
Change the web-browser language. If you are using google chrome, change the language translation to polish.

Bingo! 🙂
