Joomla! 2.5 and later ships with multilingual support in the core. Using the default Joomla! backend, you can create content that is assigned to a certain language. Once that language is set, our extension is able to perform translations for it. Our extension also ships with support for JoomFish and FaLang.
All code of this extension is open source, and released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). When writing code, we follow the Joomla! coding guidelines. All code is of high quality.
All translations are done from your backend, and every translation is saved in your database. This makes sure you can correct translations afterwards - either by running through the text yourself, or by hiring a translator. Computer-based translations are not perfect, but they certainly can save you a lot of costs.
