    What do you mean by supported?

    You can create your own language pack/translation.

    I'm talking for a Greek language pack to install!

    How can i create my own pack/translation? Do you have something ready to use?

    You can translate xF into whatever language you want.

    On these forums you can have a look here: http://xenforo.com/community/forums/languages
    A Greek language pack is currently not available there. This means you either have to create it by your own or find someone doing it for you, I guess.

    Is there a tool that can help me start translating?

    There is an interface in the Admin Control Panel that let you view all thre phrases in the system and it lets you type a translation if you want.

    All of the below will be imported.

    You can set up redirects for existing links.

    Forum Views, I'm not sure on, but the rest will most definitely get imported over. With proper redirects set up (301 Permanently Moved), search engines will gradually update their indexes to point to the next XenForo installation.

    ... ninja'd ... again ...

    You use .htaccess to redirect old (existing) links to new (future, post-import) links.

    Don't worry, someone (@Jake Bunce) will be able to help with this.

    I used the below in .htaccess and it covered pretty much all of the old phpBB3 links

    Code:
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)t=([0-9]+)(&|$) [NC]
            RewriteRule ^viewtopic\.php$ /threads/%2? [L,R=301,NC]
            RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} f=(\d+)$ [NC]
            RewriteRule ^(viewforum\.php|viewtopic\.php)$ /forums/%1? [L,R=301,NC]
            RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} (^|&)p=([0-9]+)(&|$) [NC]
            RewriteRule ^viewtopic\.php$ /posts/%2? [L,R=301,NC]

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTTP_301

    Basically, it tells search engines that what used to be at URL A is now at URL B and is going to stay there. As Brogan said, the community will help you.

    Thanks so much..
    The initial post, user registration and other dates (from phpbb) will remain after migration?

    We shout the we are the first 2CV forum in Greece.. The first installation date will be also transferred (viewable) ?
    My apologies for all these questions..

    All of the timestamps will be retained.

    What specifically are you concerned about?

    If so, I've not seen that anywhere in the ACP in XF.
