Languages, Multi-lingual Content

jDiction is a translation component for Joomla 3.7 (2.5 supported till version 1.3), its designed for managing multilingual content. The main focus is the simple management of 1to1 translations. jDiction integrates perfect into existing Joomla installations and extends them with its own language selection modul and direct integration in to the existing administration-interface. Further more it offers an import and export function for translating a complete website with Excel or LibreOffice Calc with CSV Files or XLIFF for professional Translation Software. The integration into 3rd party components is simple, it only needs a XML File with some metadata, this file could be created easily. jDiction does not supply a automatic translation. jDiction is GPLv3 licensed and could be downloaded free of charge at http://jdiction.org

Works in almost everywhere but the Joomla core categories when you add them on a menu item! I get 404 errors every time

Ease of use

It is very easy to make translations right on the menu, article, module and not make duplicate content for each language


Support is limited, I have asked for support with the problem I've had with the categories and has not received proper assistance.


Well documented

I used this to: Multiple sites with all versions of Joomla

Posted on 08 April 2015

Excellent, suitable for all the content, articles menus and modules.

Ease of use

One of the easiest extensions in JED


Herald is always willing to support and does it effectively.


Documentation is not detailed, but the extension itself is so easy to use that one doesn't really need any documentation!

I used this to: A real estate website with the latest Joomla 3.4.1


You can translate from inside the content, from overview or export the content for external translator. There is everything you want!

Ease of use

Very easy to use,easy to keep an overview of translated an not translated content. No need to duplicate articles and menu entries.


Excellent support, very reactive and friendly. Free tool with professional help. Hats off to the developer!


Installation an configuration instruction with screenshots will help you to use the plugin in no time.

I used this to: Since years for personal an small enterprise website with three languages.


Best and easiest way to get a multilanguage site.

Ease of use

Works perfectly, very easy to use. Need no instructions.




The step by step image slideshow is very good and easily understandable, but sometimes a bit unfavorable. (Only needed for installation.)

Great extension, great support

Everything works excellent, only thing that would be nice to improve is compability with more editors.

Ease of use

All you have to do is to click "Translate" button to add translated content.


Can I give score 1.000 for this section? Very fast and very good support by Harald Leithner. And it's free, but I think it shouldn't be.


Follow the documentation and you wouldn't have any problem to install jDiction properly.

I used this to: I used this extension for several projects where i needed content on 2 or 3 diffrent languages.

Jdiction is Epic

Posted on 31 December 2014

Works like a charm.
You can get your site from single to multi-language in minutes!!!

Ease of use

It's very easy to install and configure!!!!


Jdiction Forum has all the answers you may need!!!


Jdiction allows you to save A LOT of time, comparing to the normal way of creating a multilanguage site, as found in many sources.

Very fast to implement, and the support (Harald in my case) answered within minutes.

Thanks a lot Harald and team.

5 star rating is not enough...

This extension is way beyond anything out there. Apart it's simple to set up and use, the support given on a minor tweak I had (not related to the extension but a separate language file) was instant and dedicated.

Thanks a lot Harald. Keep up the great job...
