Hi Nico,

Just a little checklist:

1. Did you add a condition with settings for the extra language similar to this?

[globalVar = GP:L = 2]
config {
     sys_language_uid                    = 2
     language                            = de
     locale_all                          = de_DE.UTF-8
     htmlTag_setParams                   = lang="de" dir="ltr" class="no-js"

2. Do you have a
config.linkVars = L(0-1) or similar which could block your new L value?

3. Did you create a website language record in the root page?
