What part can Joomla play in the Multilingual Web. Presentation at W3C conference in Luxembourg


... community project, no company behind it
... joomla supports 57 languages
... joomla provides 3 options for translating websites
... 1 - machine translation using widgets from Google, Microsoft
... quality is not guaranteed, not indexed
... 2 - parallel translation using plugins, everything has to be translated
... translations are indexed
... the question is whether we should just translate or provide local content
... 3 - sites within site, translate content only when appropriate
... the key in joomla is categorise, add and show
... for each language different menu can be provided
