FaLang Popular ComponentModulePlugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
Your site in multiple languages in the easiest way. The Falang component allows you to manage all your content translations, even the content of all your components/modules, on your web site.

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 losing your translations and parameters.

The Free version has no limitation.

Falang doesn't use the default language system of Joomla 2.5 and 3.3. 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

Falang is a fork of Joomfish 2.1.7 which has been re-written to be compatible with Joomla! 2.5 and now Joomla! 3.3

+ fix 5.4 php warning message on publish item in the list
+ fix front-end bug
+ add frontedit param's in content element file

I almost decided to use Falang instead of Joomfish on joomla 2.5. Almost.

I was migrating an old 1.5. site to 2.5. and read in the forums that it's better to use Falang.
It seems to be identical to joomfish at first, however, I realised that unlike with joomfish, the item aliases that appear in the URLs don't get translated!

This may seem like a minor compromise for a new site, but in my case all my old URLs in the second language would have to change. I'm sorry but that's an SEO disaster, and this matters to me.

I've decided to stick with the buggy prerelease version of joomfish for 2.5 instead. For now at least. I'll keep my eye on Falang too... It will be interesting to see in the near future which one of these two adapts to joomla 3.5 first... going to be quite a race I think.

Yes you're right Falang don't translate url (soon) but you can use another sef tool to do it. like joomsef , acesef, mijosef....
The version for joomla 3.0 will be launch this week.

I've been using JoomFish till a few months ago. For the redesign of a constumer's website I tried FaLang. After a short period of orientation the extension works great. Had a little problems, which I finally got solved with a few hints of the developer.

Would use it again w/o hesitating.

Really good component but needs some changes to make things work. Do not forget to set the default language to the language your articles are or you will not be able to make the translation

I have bought the commercial license and have few problems to make it work on my sites. Thanks to quick support I have been able to solve it. I did some mistakes because I have migrated my site from wordpress so falang didnt liked the language codes of wordpress. Great component, simple to use and outstanding support.

I downloaded Falang because I needed it to use with HikaShop. It seems really good. There aren't automatic translations, apart from the basic shopping cart stuff which has been translated by a previous HikaShop user; you translate all the product information yourself so it's done properly as you want and Falang connects the two, or more, language versions. Magic! I had to contact Stephane once and he was helpful and friendly.

This is a fine product for joomla, works and delivers well on this platform just as joomfish,

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.

Best regards,

I use Falang to make my community website multilingual. It works very well and I can recommend it. Especially the support is great. This is extremly important for me because I don´t understand about programming and I am new to Joomla. Stephane even helped me out with some problems that were not related to Falang when I was trying to set up the multilingual website.

I've been searching for the translation tool to be equipped onto Joomla 2.5 quiet some time now. Yes, I've tried the famous extension before but this one prove to be more reliable, easy installation and further more the file size itself were small. I'm happy with the extension and I'm too want to give it the Excellent rating. Keep it up guys!

I always worked with Joomfish for Multilanguage Joomla Webpages and was pretty sad to see that a official Version for Joomla 2.5 is not out yet. Then i discovered FALANG and have to say: It's absolutely perfect. It's even easyer to handle than Joomfish and very clear to understand.

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.
