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 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 joomla 3.3 compatibility

+ add flag (srp-ME)
+ fix quote in title (text) translation
+ k2 extra field field translation (paid version)

After struggling with the new Joomla 2.5 lang support I found this extension and thought lets give it a try.
So I went ahaed and spent the 35Euro and I have to say, this extension is worth every cent. Not only does Stephan do a incredible job answering support questions - within 30minutes i got an answer - but also Falang supports the native lang feature
So i could resolve my troubles simply by cloning the modules and add them to the specific language, without doing any additional hacking etc.

This is way better then using the native Joomla language solution, especially if you have a huge site, cause it wil make your life so much easier

Therefore 5* Start from me

Keep up the good work

I have installed this extension because of switching a multi-language site from J1.5 to J2.5. Stépahne helps me to migrate the old content of a Joomfish table and it works like a charm now. Thank you for the awesome support and tool!

A must have for multilingual sites.

Had the J! team included natively easy to use language views and life would be easier for webmasters...but they didn't and Falang is the free answer, although totally bypassing J! native language management.

At the present stage, Falang is the simplest free way of managing multilingual sites effectively. Simple, organized, straighforward, just like any good CMS component should be.

To become perfect, Falang just needs some extra automation:
- Bing/Google automatic translation button / cron (like MissintgT)
- Some information on creating content elements, so the community can start adding external modules
- Frontend editing

Overall, at present, the must have for J!2.5 multilingual management

Everything was working apart from the menus. Contacted Stéphane late on a Friday, not expecting a response until Monday, and before I knew it my problem was fixed (the driver plugin needed to be ordered before a conflicting plugin). The standard edition is worth it!

Amazing support, great product, very deserving of further development. Falang accomplishes the fastest method for Joomla 2.5 multilingual, where no other plug-in is capable.

This developer should be given an army of programmers! Plus the name is hilarious, if you've ever been to Thailand...

Ok this seems to be the only solution for a multilingual site because Joomfish seems to have stuck in 1.5. We had some problems with the configuration but the developers replied quickly and our problems were solved. It is a must for a site translation although some components may not be supported. Thank you for this wonderful extension

Easy to use.
I'm using it for English/ Welsh school site.
The welsh language file for joomla currently doesn't exist.
The developer helped me create a language file to get the site and component working.
The support is excellent.
Component is fantastic to use, showing you pages you have converted and which ones you need to do.
Simple for frontend users, click a flag to change language.
This is for sure the easiest method i have found for language options on Joomla 2.5
Developer is super helpful and replies to emails quickly.
Component is fantastic !!

This is an excellent extension since there is no Joomfish available for Joomla 2.5. It;s very easy to set up and saves you a lot of time in comparison with the standard translation option in Joomla 2.5.
The only option I can't find is to display the language based on domain (so .de is german, .fr french, etc.)

Very good extension, works fine, easier than the original, I was having a problem wit this extension, which came from another extension.

I would never have found the issue myself, Stephane went in to our website and corrected the problem.
Good job done !
