yvTransliterate Plugin

yvTransliterate is Transliteration plugin for Joomla!. The plugin transliterates article aliases and aliases of other elements of Joomla! site interface (menu items, sections, categories...), that are used in Search engine optimization (SEO) for creation of Search engine friendly (SEF) slugs (URLs).
For transliteration of the alias of the Article, it takes into account "Content Language" of the Article (stored in metadata of the Article). And it may also be used by (integrated in) any other Joomla! extension to transliterate text strings. Language packs are supported: they contain transliterations for additional languages.

v.2.1. February 2013: Updated to support Joomla! 2.5.
(Please download yvTransliterate v.2.0.x of packages for Joomla! 1.6 - 1.7)

v.2.0. March 2011: Updated to support Joomla! 1.6.
(Please download yvTransliterate v.1.xx of packages for Joomla! 1.5)

What's new in v.1.2.0:
1. yvTranliterate code moved to SVN repository, see
2. Debugging was greatly improved
3. 'Default content language' option was added. If the value of this option was not selected, the language defaults to current Language of User interface.

What's new in v.1.1:
1. Added another 'hook' into Joomla! core: parameter 'Extend JLanguage class'. Now yvTransliterate may transliterate not only aliases of Articles (or comments in a case of yvComment), but aliases of other elements of Joomla! site interface also: menu items, sections, categories... in fact, yvTransliterate works in every place, where Joomla! core called JLanguage::transliterate method.
2. Two new translations were added since previous release, see them at JoomlaCode:
Czech (Thanks to Muskwa).
Ukrainian (Thanks to Ary Group).

Useful plugin especially for Joomla 1.5 sites with language containing national characters, eg. Polish. Now there is now problem with creation of aliases in any Joomla resources.

Great extension if your site is in other language than english and site users are submitting new content.

Thanks for this TOOL - it is great for publishers that have lot of articles to publish and don't want to think about aliases at all.

Only dont forget to download a language pack separately. The plugin itself does not have it. Its stated in the doc on the developers site, but as usual i downloaded and installed without thorough reading ).

Thanks for a good plugin! Molodec!
