- This extension requires registration to download.
The component is so flexible that you can easily add new components at a later date and then translate the new content.
With extensions you can translate k2, aiContactSafe, Docman , Redshop, jDownload, phocaDownload ....
The free version has a backlink to faboba site. You can remove it if you upgrade to a basic or standard version without loosing your translations and parameters.
The Free version has no limitation.
Falang doesn't use the default language system of Joomla 2.5 and 3.0. You don't have to specify a language for each content article or menu item (which results in a huge amount of duplication).
Did you ever ask yourself how you can create a multi-lingual website without copying every single item and re-creating them in the new language? Then Falang is one of the possible answers to this problem.
In case of problems look for the solution in that page: falang’s problems resolution

I have to say that FaLang is by far the best, most comprehensive, easy to install, and easy to use extension I've tried.
As a drawback, I had an issue in translating some specific HikaShop features (HikaShop Badges URL - so it was pretty specific). I emailed the developer describing the issue in an hope that it could be resolved in a future release.
Within minutes, not only did I have a reply from Stéphane, but also a solution. So, when it comes to support, it's way above what you could expect and way above excellent.
Thank you Stéphane for an exellent extension and for excellent support.
It fits perfectly my business day which gives me only occasionally some time to work on the site. With Falang I was able to put the site online and translate it step by step as time permits.
The support is excellent as well. They give valuable hints even when the problem is not primarely with their component.
All thumbs up!
Recently I upgraded and had a problem on the backend of one of my sites. The support was AMAZING. Stephanie followed up on my emails and helped me figure out it was a PHP problem I had to upgrade on one site.
I recommend this Extension to anyone looking for Multilanguage and not only for the extension and technology but the support.
I paid for support and Stéphan never left me alone until his script was workin fine, not only with the 3rd-party extension but even with the multi-menu-template (complicated setting) I have.
I bought several extension (a lot of) but never in my life I've experienced a support like this.
I now can understand why this guy has this level of ranking. You can't imagine a better support and human respect.
Had some minor issues with K2 fields and the developer jumped in immediately to test and resolve.
Client is very happy, I am as well!
About the component I have to say that now translating my site is very easy. Very useful component for multilingual sites!.
