Re: Multi-Lingual

Hi Kimon and welcome to txp.

Could you tell us a bit more?
Do you need all your articles to be made available in other language(s)?
Do you need to have some articles in one language and others in another?
Do you need articles where 2 or more languages are present?

Re: Multi-Lingual

There are different ways of approaching this depending on how complex your site is. Can you tell us some more about your needs. Some ideas by way of example:

  • A really simple way is to make a en and fr section (or whatever your languages are) and assign the different articles in your site to the respective section. That gives you the option to give each article a different own-language url, e.g. /en/about-us and /fr/a-propos but is only really suitable for sites with simple structures, e.g. that don’t have sub-sections.
  • You can make articles with several body fields in one article using a custom-field plugin, e.g. a body_en and body_fr. You can then show the respective language content depending on the active language. The url of the article has to be in one language, so you would only have /about.
  • You can set up pairs of sections and pairs of articles in each language and then link them via custom fields, e.g. you’d have a custom field that links a-propos to about (and vice-versa) and similarly for sections. Your sections and articles can be in their own language, e.g. vegetables/cucumber and legumes/cucumbre. It’s very flexible but requires you to prepare languages and link sections and articles carefully.
  • There’s also a dedicated plugin called MLP, but I’m not sure if it still works with recent versions of Textpattern.
  • The variant that Colak posted is another way as well.

It doesn’t, unfortunately. The pageless section approach, linked to by colak, is the best native way we have of managing multi-lingual content right now.

It is one of our long-term goals to permit true multi-lingual content within the CMS but we’re not there yet.
