GoogleTranslate for Joomla!

  • More control over your translations
  • Less expensive than hiring translators
  • Much faster than frontend translations

GoogleTranslate offers frontend translation. Useful, yes. But often slow, and it is not always perfect. Our powerful Joomla! extension offers backend translations for all your products and categories. This allows you to correct translations before publishing. And it makes your site fly!
