I have facecook like button plugin on my vanilla forum. Although I added

<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/tr_TR/all.js#xfbml=1">

into my button code, it does not show the button in Turkish.

here is an example topic that you can see facebook button on my forum : http://www.herkesuzman.com/discussion/17/projeksiyona-baglaninca-ekran-coezuenuerlueguenuen-bozulmasis

I solved the problem in the end by adding following code into my default.master.php file ;

<META http-equiv=content-type content=text/html;charset=iso-8859-9>
<META http-equiv=content-type content=text/html;charset=windows-1254>
<META http-equiv=content-type content=text/html;charset=x-mac-turkish>

Did you edit the script to account for Turkish from this:

<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/en_us/all.js#xfbml=1">

the en_us part basically says English and then the form, which in this case is US English

For Turkish, however, you don't have to put the region/form, just the language.

Try this and let me know what you get:

<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/tr/all.js#xfbml=1">

thanks for the proposition @Melanie , I did what you told but I get still same result... the button is still in English :( here is the result : Result – HerkesUzman Apr 9 '11 at 14:28

The facebook plugin is automatically located based on the user location. I'm from Spain, and I see the button in Spanish. I guess the same applies for the Turkish user base.
