My experience using Joomla is limited, i needed a Multi-Language site, not knowing what to expect i ended up reading a lot of reviews about the different choices available.

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.

Thank you to the developer for this excellent FREE extension.

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!

Used it on a 2.5 Joomla, and it works really well.
It was pretty easy to implement, and a few snags were quickly resolved by browsing support forums.
Highly recommended

I installed jdiction on a Joomla 3.2 Installation and run into some issues.

The issues was solved within a couple of hours and now the component works properly, and is very easy to handle.

Really great work guys!

I've been in search of a simple approach of multilingual sites for some time now. (It is compulsory in my area to offer at least two languages in each and every website we develop.)

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!

Works as great as it may be expected in your ideal world, but the configurations is a bit difficult (installed on J. 3.1.5).
Anyway great job, thank you!

I download this extension and I am satisfied, because I can translate my articles easier. But not write an article in english, other in russian and other english - and make chaos in my cpanel.
I wrote article, and near with title, I see if it is translated or no.
And support is the best!

A really recommended extension for multy-language management. It has everything you need, is really simple and to-the-point-functional, and the support is the best I have encountered on a a free piece of software (or paid, when I think about it).
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?

jDiction is a smooth and very user-friendly extension for adding multiple languages to your site. The level of expertise in joomla can be at the very lowest when using this extension. It is very straight forward with easy to follow guidelines/instructions provided by the jDiction team. Just go to their main site and you will be translating you're content in under 2 minutes.

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.

I am using it on two sites now and i have to say it is wonderful.
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!

Simply put, this component and plugin are simply the easiest way to get multilanguage site up and going.

I've tried other components, and found them rather complicated. JDiction is much easier to use and, more important, explain to end users.

I've already made a couple websites so I've got a little experience, jDiction really makes translations alot easier.

As for the support, I've never seen developpers reply so rapidly and willing to help. I had a problem (of my own making) and jDiction team (Harald) helped me out, replying within the half hour and even going to my website when I gave him the keys.

I VERY strongly advise those who want a multi-lingual site to use this marvelous tool.

I was looking for an extension for multilanguage support on my website. The website I'm doing will have a lot of photo gallery. I struggled a bit with the installation but got immediate support when I asked a question in the jdiction forum.

Jdiction was not working with phocagallery (an other extension to display photo gallery), I asked the question in the forum and I was provided with a solution in less than 30min.

The extension is quite simple to use once installed, I strongly recommend it!!

I installed this for my bilingual site after failing with Joomfish. This is much simpler and the installation instructions are provided with a step by step image slideshow with very few words - a bonus in my opinion, as often instructions are too wordy and complicated. However, I didn't realize that I should also click on the images for more info, which led to me missing out a step.
The mod didn't work for me on installation, so I sought help in the forum and received a very quick response. The dev team logged into my site and fixed the problem very quickly and effectively, and now I have a great translation system. Works on all aspects of the site - articles, menus, SEO, and so on. Fantastic mod, thanks guys.
