Specific solutions

Enabling translations

The first time you enable translations for a siteaccess, the QT linguist .ts files containing the translations are cached to .php files, making them much faster to retrieve. You can generate the translation cache files from the command line to prevent timeouts, with the PHP script bin/php/ezgeneratetranslationcache.php.
