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

That's how I discovered Falang, and I must say the author has made a great job here.
If you used Joomfish before you will feel at home with Falang. The interface is even cleaner and easier to use than its predecessor Joomfish.
The instructions to setup the component are very clear, and eventually everything works 100% as expected.
One (simple) thing not to forget: Publish the System - Language Filter plug-in otherwise translations wont work. I found myself struggling for half an hour with this. But this is clearly explained in the setup instructions, 100% my fault, I should have read them ;)
Thanks again for the excellent work
In the original article I can insert html tags 'style' since it's not in the blacklist.
But FaLang seems to ignore blacklist or whitelist settings and strip my tags...
Even as a superadmin (with no filtering at all) I can't insert a 'style' tag in a FaLang translation.
I've tried to edit the joomla blacklist's file but FaLang doesn't seems to rely on it since it always strips.
The free version have this bottom link
You need to buy a license for this (basic or standard)
I have to say the looks and feel are almost like the Old Joomfish.
I encountered spome problems when migrating the JoomFish content to Falang.
But Stéphane gave me a very quick solution (within one day !) for the problem. Thank you very very much. He is working on a migration tool to migrate Joomfish to Falang.
At the moment there's just one smaller problem, the "Recently Changed" module doesn't seem to work an only shows articles in the original (Dutch) Language and none in the English language.
I'm giving up after several installation attempts, I carefully followed the instructions but I can't see anything showing up in translation area of the component no menus, no categories, no content.
Therefore I declare this useless.
What's really bugging me is that there're no valid non-commercial alternatives around for joomla 2.5.
You probably don't follow well the documentation. you can write me to fix your problem.
1. Sometimes edited content not saved (if you edit in html mode and press save - changed content not saved, you must switch off html mode and then it work).
2. Sometimes I saw several records in falang component to one content and I can edit any of them but result will be the same.
3. Sometimes I can't switch on publishing check, but content has been published.
4. Joomla create single link to home page in any languages and native switcher works correctly with this links (then I click to domain.com, it go to domain.com/lang page), but falang switcher don't work properly and it go to default language page.
5. Custom controls can't be edited in falang
Last update was been several months ago and I don't recommended use this control until author fix this errors.
All your problem are very strange because it's never happens to any user.
Are you sure your joomla installation is well done ?
Look at the other reviews.
I´m happy to find this component and invest some bucks for it. This component is easy to install, leightweight, easy to handle and the support is great. Keep up the good work Stéphane... Cheers, Elvis
Thanks a million!
