Slides from Gábor Hojtsy, Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative Lead's presentation for jam's Drupal Camp on the incredible work and improvements for translation and localisation that have gone into Drupal 8.
Over 800 (yes, eight hundred) people participated in the issues around improving multilingual features and APIs in Drupal 8 for the past two and a half years. Over 500 issues have been resolved making Drupal 8 a truly outstanding release for everybody looking to create even single language non-English sites but especially those making multilingual sites.
This session aims to show you around all the great improvements and give tips as to how to best utilise the new solutions.
The ideal attendee at this session has some experience in Drupal 6 or 7 multilingual site building, however those who have no experience in foreign/multilingual site building will also get a lot out of it.
Want to be involved in this project? See http://hojtsy.hu/multilingual-drupal8 for an article series on the details on what we accomplished. http://www.drupal8multilingual.org/ is our initiative home and we have meetings every other week to discuss and move current efforts forward.
