Building Multilingual Sites with Drupal
Drupal is an amazing platform for building multilingual websites. Whether you're building a website for an international organization or a personal blog in multiple languages, Drupal gives you the tools you need to translate content and provide a multilingual interface for your users.
Given the complexity of multilingual websites, configuring a multilingual Drupal website can be a challenge. Depending on the type of site you’re building, the list of modules you’ll need and the configuration settings you’ll choose will vary greatly. A single project could include more than one method for translating menus, taxonomy terms, and content. Before you get started, you need to consider your audience, what type of content you have, and how all the pieces of your website will be translated.
This webinar will help you plan your next multilingual project and get started on the right foot. You will gain an understanding of Drupal’s multilingual architecture and how translations are managed for different parts of Drupal. You’ll learn which modules to use for different use cases, and what questions to ask before you start the project.
