JoomFish 2.5 is the full featured release including several addons such as a simple Router for your SEO URL's. It comes with new features such as the integration into the Joomla core translation techniques and enhanced 3rd party support.
Free documentation including video tutorials, first step documentations and additional material is available on our website. The site also includes an open forum for community support and additional resources.
The Joom!Fish club (subscription required) offers enhanced support options and a range of add ons targeted at commercial and professional websites. These include plugins to further manage/restrict the display of untranslated content, restrict certain menus and modules to specific languages and an additional frontend translation component that allows you to manage translators and what they are allowed to translate.
This is very very bad!!!!
It would be wise if you double check your order before complaining in public. Your account was activated automatically but to the user you applied for not for a different one.
As far as I can see, does not auto translate content, that has to be done 1 step at a time, 1 language at a time Part of a dual process so you also need language packs, some of which seem to have disappeared. A great idea, hard to get working for a number of languages. I am using GTranslate as temporary stopgap as it will take so long to finish. Page links via flag click to another initially blank page that will hold the translation. So translation could be perfect, looks great but hard work to install all processes.
If you don't know how to use it and are not keen to taking the time to learn this will be an issue. Any average person can figure it out...
Editors Pick? You must be joking!
It simply doesn't work. All I get is the English duplicated into where the German should be or blank spaces with nothing in them. Hello! I don't speak German and that is why I loaded this **** component to do it for me.
I heard it uninstalls nicely - 10 points for that! Obviously the best feature! *uninstalls*
I can not wait anymore for Joomfish to release a public, PHP 5.3 supported version (2.1), so does anybody know a good alternative solution to Joomfish with similar functionality? Tnx.
It's very easy to use, and does exactly what it promises! Saved me a great amount too!
The ones that complained about that the component didn't translate the text for them automatically without them having to write the translation them selves, haven't read what the product is about!
I contacted the developer about a question, and was answered in a very kind way within the same day.
Great product, get it now!
I also had to do some troubleshooting, but browsing a bit through the forum solved my problems!
I would give 4 and a half star, but as this is not possible I´ll give you guys 5! Keep up the good work!!!!!!
Its not really intuitive. Expect to burn time on it.
I guess once you figure it out it may work ok, but this is no longer 1990, the stuff that doesnt work without trying gets thrown away.
The Joomfish has only one small drawback. It is a bit tough in the beginning. The installtion went smooth. Then you want to take your first steps and go to the Joomla control panel, and you are confused.
My major problem was that whenever I had to select a language from the drop-down box, I never knew if I have to select my source or my target language. I think the developers could do a lot with little effort to ease these problems with a step-by-step tutorial. Also some tool tip information next to the language selection boxes would help, and maybe a better wording on the translation form by using such unambiguous words like 'source language' and 'target language'.
There is indeed a lot of documentation - text, videos and a forum. But it is a bit here and a bit there, but you do not get the whole picture. Therefore my main advice, first take half a day to read before you go into action.
A few more tips: Use Firefox. I got an "error on page" message when I used the 'Manage Translations' function with IE8. (this function is not really necessary in my view).
In my experience you need mainly the 'Translation' menu. That page is your main tool. And when your basic language is let's say English and you want to tranlate into German, then select "German" from the drop down box, and from the "contents elements" box select something easy to start with like your contact page. Then check how it works. Once you got the hang of it, it is a charm and big fun.
In spite of the little criticism I decided to give a full 'excellent' rating. It is an excellent tool, and guys let's not forget that we get this for free!
