There also needs to be a language translation for the ADMIN Menu. Otherwise, the admin menu will only show the menu-item aliases See Forum thread.

The specification of the admin menu for the component in the installation manifest would look something like this:

<menu>com_hello</menu>
<submenu>
        <menu controller="features">com_hello_greetings</menu>
        <menu controller="config">com_hello_config</menu>
</submenu>

Then we would add an additional language file to the installation manifest called en-GB.com_hello.sys.ini:

<languages folder="admin">
       <language tag="en-GB">language/en-GB/en-GB.com_helloworld.ini</language>
       <language tag="en-GB">language/en-GB/en-GB.com_helloworld.menu.ini</language>
       <language tag="en-GB">language/en-GB/en-GB.com_helloworld.sys.ini</language>
</languages>

And this new language file would look like this:

COM_HELLO=Hello World!
COM_HELLO_GREETINGS=Manage Greetings
COM_HELLO_CONFIG=Configuration

Adding translation when installing the component

This section is unclear to me. It reads, "With your favorite file manager and editor, put a file EXTENSIONROOT/language/en-GB/en-GB.myextension.sys.ini. This file will contain translation for the install."

In the tutorial on making extensions, most everything is in site/... or admin/... so there is no folder called com_helloword/... com_helloworld is created automatically, so where in the package should EXTENSIONROOT/language/en-GB/en-GB.myextension.sys.ini go?

Earlier in the tutorial, there is already a sys.ini created in the admin directory with different content, and all the tutorial references are to the extension being made (e.g. the file would be named en-GB.com_helloworld.sys.ini not en-GB.myextension.sys.ini and the file does not appear in the package list. The package list also contains a file called language/en-GB/en-GB.ini which does not appear to be in the tutorial and does not link to any content.

I think this portion needs some clarification.
