Translate as easy as possible - a fresh, but mature translation manager for Joomla!
It replaces Joomla multilingual capabilities with a different system that gives you much easier and the most useful way to manage your site translations at one single place.
Manage translations for any content in a single interface that shows an original and a translation at the same time
Only translate fields that need translation and automatically reuse those that don't (e.g. images or links)
Speed up translations by using Google translate (requires very cheap API key purchase)
Optionally translate and associate (translation with original) items directly from the native interface (inline translations for core extensions)
Supports all core extensions and large number of 3rd party extensions (using Joomfish content elements)
End user features
Instant switching between languages that takes you directly to the same page in a different language
When translation does not exist, either original item or a predefined message is shown. Optionally you can also chose to remove untranslated items from lists (list view, blog view, menus etc)
Web builder/administrator feature
Joomfish migrator - plugin for JupgradePro to migrate JoomFish translations from Joomla 1.5. to 2.5./3.x
Important differences beween LanterFish and core Joomla multilanguage
The biggest difference is the logic behind it - the way it works. While core Joomla multilanguage is a filtering system that requires separate item for each language and then filters content based on the language when presenting it, LanterFish is a translation system which is based on default language and its translations. While Joomla structures are totally independent, LanternFish basically uses 1 to 1 structure - by default it shows item in default language if there is no translation (there are other options available). This means that LanternFish can save you a lot of time and work as you only need to translate what is translatable and there is also no need to care about creation of separate menus and categories for each language as required by Joomla.
You can use same alias for content, menus, categories that are in different language. Comes very handy when title/name is not translatable,e.g. when it is persons name or city etc (in Joomla you would need to have aliases like pariseng, parisfra, paris_esp etc)
