- 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 send an Excelent! :)
The developer send to me that the Joomla 3.0 version will be compatible very soon.
however K2 is very poorly supported - and i payed good money for two licenses hoping this would be my savior, the program is buggy, for example some of the K2 fields get deleted if you press "apply" and not "save & close",
also it's not compatible with K2store, which is what i bought this for...
All my concerns were emailed and for every mail i got a one sentence reply - "is not supported" or "can't be done". without real answers to my questions... and for some emails i didn't receive any reply, by far my least pleasent experiences dealing with a developer. I am reserved person so i didn't bother to write angry emails, but for a user who bought two licenses within such a short period of time, i would expect more courtesy and attention to my questions,
i made two multilingual k2 sites with store - i'm not a happy puppy, my next project i think i will opt for zoo + zoolingual.
Sorry i don't remember your mail but :
- K2 is full supported (with tweak for custom fields)
- The 100998 of the community don't have an content elmement for Falang your right.
- There are some extension who can't be translated with Falang because there are not compatible, i can't do nothing for that but generaly i write to the developper to make it compatible.
I had a small problem so i had to buy the license to get Support from the developer. Very recommended aswell. He helped me quick and clear.
Thanks to Faboba I can make multilanguage websites with smile on face again.
Just don't forget to install conten plugin, otherwise translated articles won't be displayed in search results. :)
1) You can translate article, menu, categories and more from only one page(component); copying layout (images, charcater, type...) from original language (so more speedy respect original joomla system where you need copy and rewrite all content)
2) Free version have only a little link at botton (but in any articles)
1) Create translation require backend access
2) Link on bottom in any content (for free version)
In any case good component! Great works!
Five star when allow translation from frontend standard form (an amazing features will be possibility to translate from original joomla input article's forms in site frontend)
Forced by the unavailibity for 2.5 I looked into other products. Falang is simple to use, easy to install and when I hit a snag Stephane was quick to help and solved it in no time!
Support replies quick and with straight forward answers!
It could use some small improvements on eg filtering. We posted a mail to Stephane, and the next release probably contains this feature.
We love this software!
But I have some major concerns...
1— This takes over completely or in parts the new integrated Joomla system that is EXCELLENT, but really complex (too complex) to operate for the normal site owner. Remember that from this day on this integrated system WILL be part of all future Joomla versions and Component and add-ons creator will implement for the integrated system first.
2— The worst (for me anyway), and seem to be kept quiet (Not mention as a pre-required here?), is that Search engines will see only the default language as valid. You HAVE NO CHOICE to install something like JoomSEF or any other of those invasive components to have a multilingual, SEO adequate, professional site.
Those 2 points alone make me doubt that we have a practical solution here. Sorry.
The only major thing i found with the way it works is that you have to manually make changes whenever your content changes, but i guess i can live with that...
