This is a collection of modules to extend Drupal core multilingual capabilities and be able to build real life multilingual sites. Some features:

  • Taxonomy translation (both, per language terms and translatable terms)
  • Multilingual variables
  • Multilingual blocks (control visibility per language and translate title and content)
  • Language selection (when you switch the site language you'll see only the content for that language)
  • Requires Variable module 2.x (Drupal 7)

Read a complete feature overview in the Internationalization handbook: Building multilingual sites .

Drupal 6

Internationalization for Drupal 6 is the previous stable release of the module. Though it will be maintained and get bug fixes, don't expect new features for it. This is the documentation for the 6.x version: Internationalization 6.x handbook.

If you want to speed up maintenance bug fixes for this version you can a) Write unit tests or b) Apply to become a maintainer or c) Help cleaning up the 6.x issue tracker. (Just whinning on the issue tracker will actually slow down maintenance).

The module development and documentation for Drupal 6 has been sponsored by Development Seed
