First off, I have used Joomfish for 1.5 sites. Secondly, I did not understand the Joomla 1.7 language pack configuration before I started.
I was really glad to find something to bridge the gap in 1.7. I bought the license because I needed to turn 2 project quickly.
Stephane was really responsive given the time difference. I am in US, she is 12 hours difference... I think.
Falang does not require you enter publish dates.. it does it automatically. So this is better than Joomfish
It installs easily and worked fine out of the box. Stephane's documentation is so easy a beginning Joomla person should have no problem.
Very cool fork! Thank Stephane!
