This one just works and its simple like WPML, yeah, cause i made this site also in WP and wasn't quite sadisfyed with it.
This one extension brings Joomla back in the game.
Grab it while its free.
Big thx to guys from ITronic!
Doing the same like Falang but it is for free and it really has a clear overview.
You can handle your own translations in a central point so there is no need to search for the doubled articles somewhere.
The documentation is very good also and easy to understand.
Another really great point is the support! I never had such a fast and helpful nice support ever in my life. Special thanks to Harald for that!
If I could rate 10 Star I would give it. (the mistake was from my side - the extension was working fine)-
Also I did try out the native multi language option in Joomla but found it was limited.
I decided on Jdiction because of the reviews here, I can assure all that read this the reviews written here complimenting the support and use of Jdiction are well founded for this FREE extension.
I had a problem with the Chinese flag, Harald from Jdiction responded to my query on the forum within one hour, he guided me through the fix with patient ease.
Thank you again Harald.
I recommend this extension to all who require a Multi Language site. You wont be disappointed.
I took over a community website that had a government requirement to be bilingual. The previous webmaster had tried different solutions that didn't work. After seeing the reviews here on JED I decided to give it a try.
What a joy! The little colored flag system is a great idea and enables the users to know exactly what needs to be done.
This is not a "Translation" tool. You need to use your own translations.
Make sure all your menu items and articles are set to "Language: all".
Harald also offers great support and got back to me right way to solve a minor issue (my mistake).
The Extension is free, consider donating!
Since I discovered this extension, the solution is obvious: jDiction solves most of the common problems we get with multilingual websites.
Even if the software is a 1.0 prerelease version it works wonders, the documentation is neat and the developer ready to help through his support forum: a winning combo!
Love it plainly!
I wrote article, and near with title, I see if it is translated or no.
And support is the best!
When I installed jdiction it didn't work, because of, as I later found out, a typo in the database server name, totaly unrelated to the plugin itself. I posted on the forums, got a response within five minutes and after less than half an hour, the developer offered the solution.
If the current rating doesn't speak volumes about the extension, then what does?
The level of support I received was over the top and exclusive. The forums are extremely helpful and Harald will make it so. I received feedback from the form in less than 1 day and was able to resolve me problem I had, which was joomla version support(v3.0.x).
Pros - Ease of use, support, simplicity, guidelines/instructions, cost(free)
Cons - N/A (no cons)
HIGHLY recommended, no reason to go find another extension of the same purpose.
It works perfect and i had trouble once and the support made me speechless. Despite the fact that it is non-commercial, the developer took a look at the site the same day and could fix it withing 20 Minutes.
I am very glad I found this and would recomment it everyboy!
