With Joomla's excellent out of the box language functionality, a common query is how to apply a different logo to your Joomla template for each available language. In the following tutorial we will detail how this can be achieved using multiple template styles. This method will be the same for any Joomla template which allows you to set your own logo within the template style parameters.

You will repeat the following steps for each language you wish to apply a new logo excluding your current default language which will continue to use your default template style.

  1. Firstly duplicate your default template style. To do so navigate to your Template Manager (Extensions -> Templates), check the box next to your default template style and click 'Duplicate'.
