[rz] Multi-language Sites with ease *** UPD 2017-Jan-19 ***

Post by [RZ] » Sat Mar 31, 2012 7:26 pm

[rz] Multi-language Site v1.1.1

This extension allows you to make multilingual sites with ease.
You can switch to the parallel page in just one click!
Sample projects included.


HTML 4.01 Transitional
W3C compliant


* New in version 1.1.1

- More efficient core for the language redirector and selector modules.
- Improved images handling for iOS-based devices.
- Improved code for the optional centralized handling.
- Improved HTML4/5 conformation.
- Moved the selector core to an external library file for faster browsing.

* New in version 1.1

- Optional extension core: Now [rz] MultiLang (core) is optional and with it you setup the common behavior for all the multilanguage instances.
- Improved code: Compatibility with [rz] Preloaded Links (both normal and lite versions).
- Improved [rz] Multilang (redirect) extension: Optionally, it can redirect when the target page is fully loaded.
- More 3D push effects.
- Push image.
- Images for "onhover" and "onpush" events are optional.
- Full functional three sample projects included.

* New extension in v1.0.2

[rz] Multilang (redirect): This extension allows to redirect the initial page (usually index) to another one based on the browser's default language (according to the user's settings).


How to use?

1. Open a [new] project.
2. Add a new page, i.e: "language_selector".
3. Draw and grop the "[rz] MultiLang (core)" extension.
4. Open its properties dialog and tell the extension what method you will use:

folders:

you will have a folder for each language, so, your site structure will look something like this:

- myproject
- index
- language_selector (to be used as masterpage)
- english (folder)
- page1
- page2
- spanish (folder)
- page1
- page2

prefix:

instead of using folders for each language, you can have a page prefix:

- myproject
- index
- language_selector (to be used as masterpage)
- eng-page1
- esp-page1
- eng-page2
- esp-page2

5. For each language you will support on your site, add the "[rz] MultiLang" extension.
6. Open its properties dialog and tell the extension just a few things like the language, flag, etc...
7. In each page, just drag and drop the language_selector masterpage, and now you have your site fully synchronized!

As you can see, there is only one rule:
All your pages will have the same names for each supported language, that's all.
Just choose the method: folders or prefixes.
Now, let's say you are in page2, when you click on the icon (may be a flag), you will be redirected to the "same" page2 written in the language you clicked on.

* [rz] Multilang (redirect)

How to use?

1. Just drag and drop this extension to the index page (this means the initial page) and set its parameters.
2. The default language page means the page to be launched in case the user's system has a language set-up that your website doesn't support, in other words, you didn't write/add these pages in this language yet.
3. After that, you enter the two letters that represent the language you support in your website and the page to redirect to (this means if the browser's language matches with one of the languages you support in your site).

Enjoy your multilingual site!

[RZ], did you consider to add a language discoverer, which directly switch to the right page(s)?

[RZ], I mean a browser language checker (like a screen checker) and based up on the discovered language switch the visitor to the different pages. So automaticly let them jump to the right language page.

nobody reported any issues with this extension.
also i'm using it in my sites and i have no problem.
if i don't see what you did, it is very difficult for me to help you.
please post your project to see what you may did wrong.

anyhow, take in count that the index is used as a "redirecter".
the index page detect the default language settings and redirects to the proper "main" page based on these settings (*). please read very carefully the attached instructions file, re-read the first post and take a deeper look at the included sample project file (it is really simple).


EDIT:

(*) with the current extension version, you will need to do it by yourself, or do it as in the sample project file. but... an add-on will soon be added to automatically do it!!

both are included in your downloaded extension zip file.

i didn't open a developer's account yet; this is the reason i post a download link, also with a demo when it is possible, if not, a sample project at least.
well, as far as i understand from your post is you found this extension useful, so, glad to know it.
thank you for your feedback.

[RZ], Unfortunaly this redirect extension doesn't show off the hard work you put into it, since it operates in the background. But anyway, this is a very, very productive exctension we all can use very well in our globalising world ;-)

Thanx, iVent

what is "operates in the background"?
what does this mean? do you have a z-index issue?

I meant that this extension is not visible, but quietly does his job. No, I don't have any issues yet ;-) I will use it at a new website and let you know.

you have three extensions.
the core
the "flags"
and the initial redirecter
please take a look at the sample file included.
if you want to replace the "manual startup" in the index page, remove all of its contents and just place the redirecter instead... that's all...
