Stable and useful

Posted on 20 July 2017

Works like a charm. Very stable. Translates all aspects of a site (articles, menus, modules, etc.

Ease of use

Easy to install. Easy to understand and use.


I have the paid version. We sent a support request to Faboba and got a very quick reply (and solution!)


Could do with more documentation, especially for the 'Extra Params' plugin.

I used this to: Managing a large bi-lingual site.

OS Property Real Estate

Excellent Product!!

Posted on 04 August 2012

We assessed a range of software products when we decided to set up a multi-lingual real estate site and OSProperty is the best value product by far! Not only does it have a WIDE range of configurable options around the back but the level of support has been great. We contacted Dam several times with questions about functions and issues and he was not only quick to respond but he was unfailingly helpful. And the range of choices one has in terms of display and functions is truly staggering for a piece of software this size. This product is clearly the result of a LOT of thought and effort. For the money, we think this is the best value listing software around ... and for people considering a fully multi-lingual site it's the only choice! It's the only software we found which allows a full translation of all labels and all key dynamic data. We give this 5 stars. Keep

Installation was fairly intuitive, and so is configuration at the back end, but this product would definitely benefit from a comprehensive and well-written user manual. But then so would the majority of software extensions one finds!

In summary, we think this product is great for the money.

EU e-Privacy Directive

Very solid piece of work

Posted on 05 July 2012

This extension is rock solid. Installed quickly and functioned exactly as described. The only thing I'm having trouble with is configuration to suit my site. I can't find any detailed instructions on this and I've been in an out of all the extension files, and the admin panel, without success. I want to:

1. Turn off the module title bar (none of my site modules show the coloured title bar, so this one is now standing out and looks odd).

2. If 1 above isn't possible I want to change the title from mod_eprivacy to 'Cookie Info' but I can't find any language files. Where are the language strings kept?

3. As in 2, I want to amend the language string in the ribbon, but can't find the language files to change the text.

I'd appreciate some guidance on this. Thanks. Excellent coding work on this.

I wrote to Michael and he kindly send me this reply:

"Your concerns are easily addressed. I'll answer them in order.

1. The module title placement is a function of the template. I can't control that. This is how it's configured: Within the template index.php file, is a series of statements. The display of the module depends on the structure of these statements. Additionally, you can choose the title display within the module configuration, just below the module title, you can choose "Show Title" show or hide.

2. The title - you can change it to whatever you like. "mod_eprivacy" is just what the installer names it during install - it serves no purpose other than to fulfill the requirement that the module has a title.

3. The language file for that is located in /administrator/languages/en-GB/en-GB.plg_system_eprivacy.ini

I would suggest using the language manager to override the language string instead of rewriting the language file. If you rewrite the language file, then install an update later - all of your changes will be lost. Using the language manager to override the string will survive future updates. "
