About Multilingual Joomla Solutions
Joomla 2.5 makes it easier than ever to build a website in two or more languages. Third party extensions are no longer required to do this. Jen Kramer will walk you through building a website in two languages, including creating categories, articles, and menus; configuring the language switcher module; and installing language packs and configuring them. Jen will also demonstrate the exciting new language override feature, which is useful even on single language websites. The overrides allow you to quickly and easily customize Joomla messages, and the language files will not be overwritten on upgrade.
