But if you want to use it any other language then you can. Let me provide you the guide.

Method 1:- When you download the zip file of WordPress, search the file of the language you want. If you want to install WordPress in French then search for the French version of WordPress.

The same goes for all the other languages like German, Spanish, Greek, Finnish etc.

After downloading the file, you can directly upload it to the cPanel of your web hosting where the content of your website is present.

You can use either an FTP account with the Filezilla or directly login to the cPanel.
