Did you copy the languages folders from your old to your new system/expressionengine/language folder?

Edit: to make this a more complete answer- The Expression Engine docs on languages http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/general/languages.html

  • I treid to use the language folder from the new zip as well as my old folder. neither worked. I ended up reverting back to my last backup. I will attempt it again and hopefully not get this issue Jul 29, 2014 at 15:17

    Good chance it "just" works. If it doesn't work i'd try smaller steps. Upgrade to 2.7 first, then 2.7.3 etc.
