This extension is a huge time saver for those managing many sites with many extensions. The developer is very responsive to bug reports and feature suggestions. The one-time purchase price for an unlimited number of sites is also great.
Hi Pastor Dan,
Thanks very much for your review, I'm glad Josetta was helpful and simplified your translation process. Let me add two comments:
- front-end translation is not so much related to the size or number of people involved in translation. It has more to do with who is doing translation.
The basic idea is that translators should not have access to backend, because they probably don't know Joomla (and are not supposed to) - but please see second comment also
The underlying idea is also to sometimes change the workflow: instead of having translators receiving emails with text and emailing back translations, and then the admin cut and paste translations into articles, Josetta allows translators to work directly on the site.
Josetta shows them only what they should translate, they are not bothered by settings they don't understand and should not touch.
And admin don't have to manage emails and .doc files anymore
- despite what I said above, Josetta is already available in your site backend!
Wherever you are, click on the "Josetta translations" link that normally sits near the top of you admin screen, and Josetta opens and works fully in a popup.
This was done so that an admin can for instance create an article in source language in the backend, then click from the article manager and just work on the translation immediately, without having to go to a Josetta page in backend, then back to article (or categories, or contact, or...) manager.
