- 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.

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
Falang is a fork of Joomfish 2.1.7 which has been re-written to be compatible with Joomla! 2.5 and now Joomla! 3.0.

+ add debug params to display translated item.
+ compatible with php 5.4 (remove strict message)

+ fix quote in title (text) translation
+ k2 extra field field translation (paid version)
+ add rtl support in language switcher module
Thanks in advance for doing so
It's wrong , this function was added 3 months ago
I have used this package since it's conception and I have to say it's made my life a whole lot easier.
It works great 'right out of the box' and lets me use Joomla 2.5 to it's MAX.
Thanks Stéphane for your great work and support!
Stéphane, I don’t think you charge enough for your product! Thank you so much – your creation will save me countless hours and I truly appreciate it.
Also moving form joomfish isn't a big effort (ther's a tutorial on the developer page).
First difference is: Falang does not support frontend edition!
Second difference - and that's the reason I'm not using it so far: sef url functionality is not supported. While joomfish used the translated menu alias to build the url in falang the url always is in the default language. Like that
-If I move from Joomla 1.5 my content isn't available under the same url -> very bad!!!
-my url is always in the same language -> not good for search engines
A hack in the core files lets you fix that (translating the url) but then the language switcher module doesn't work anymore (and that's definitely not what I'm looking for). Also I have to translate the whole url instead of only the menu alias.
If you don't care about seo or if you do seo with an additional tool falang may be great. No - it is great. And I'm quite sure the developer will add the functionality with the menu alias and then this extension is even better.
If there'll be other extensions similar to this one, I would definitely use/buy them - thanks!
Thank you Stephane for a great product.
