EBDUG #3 - Kristen Pol - Multilingual Module Madness

Apr 24 2013, 6:30pm to 8:30pm PDT

Drupal 7 Multilingual Sites

Configuring a multilingual site in Drupal 7 is not for the faint of heart. If you search for i18n-related modules on, you’ll find nearly 100 listed! So, which ones do we really need? And, why?

This session will give a rundown of the myriad of multilingual Drupal modules as well as take a peek at what is coming up in Drupal 8. We will cover:

Must-use modules like i18n and friends
Core content translation vs. the Entity Translation module
Making the translation process easier for translators and content editors
Preview of how things will change (for the better!) in Drupal 8

Our goal will be to discuss the most important modules for creating a multilingual Drupal 7 site but we will also touch upon some optional modules that might make sense for certain sites.

To make creating multilingual Drupal 8 sites much better, please get involved with the Drupal 8 Multilingual Initiative!
