Parts of the language interface and process for changing language packs were changed starting in 2.0 onward.

One or more languages can be installed on a Moodle site via "language packs". The "Language settings" sub menu controls overall settings for the site. The installed language packs can be used in many different {{Contexts]], for example Settings > Course administration > Edit settings > Force language. Language packs can can be added via the Language sub menu "Language packs".

Specific language packs can be edited via "Language customization. The 2.x process for editing a language pack is very different than earlier version because it adds a filter form to select strings/files and something called a "translator database". "Note: For advanced users, new language packs can be created or (not recommended) existing language files directly edited outside of Moodle interface.
