How to add new language translation into Koha

Koha supports many language translations.
You can add a new language (e.g. Spanish) by using the following steps,
Open Applications > Accessories > Terminal and apply following commands,

sudo su 
export KOHA_CONF=/etc/koha/sites/library/koha-conf.xml
export PERL5LIB=/usr/share/koha/lib
cd /usr/share/koha/misc/translator
perl translate install es-ES

Change language from Administration > System Preferences > I18N/L10N > Language
Log out Koha and login again.
