Multiple Language Stack


(Monica Sayegh) #1

Which multiple language stack out there can be used (easy, powerful in terms of content, menus) other than RWML stack?

I’m not 100% sure, but I think RWML is the only one of this kind. TsoojMedia is working on a new version that will be a plugin and supposedly it will be easier to use. They have a beta version for tryout, which I did not try yet.

Thanks Rovertek, I will try the beta version.


(Monica Sayegh) #5

would you know the name of the beta version? i have googled it but did not find any! thanks

I have to correct myself. Version 2 will be stack-based – not plugin. It just won’t be dependent on the PlusKit plugin anymore.

The name is the same – RWML (RapidWeaverMultiLangual), only the version is 2 instead of 1. This new version is not published yet, so, you will have to send a message to Joost and ask him for a private link to the latest beta build. As a matter of fact, I will have to do the same, as I am ready now to start experimenting with RWML.

@Rovertek
The development of our website translation Stack I18N (Internationalisation) Stack is mostly finished.

See it in action: http://instacks.com -> menu item “Change language” / “Sprache ändern”.

It is purely File, JavaScript and Stacks based, and I am working on a rwsnippet for standard RW pages.
No PHP, Database, or import() statements involved.

Single limitation: only texts (header, title, footer, website texts etc.) are able to be translated, no support for pictures or other website parts.

I started with some documentation: http://demo.instacks.com/i18nstack/

If you are interested in some beta testing, write me an email or pm.

Cheers, Jannis

@monica Hi Monica I’m using RWML and must say that it’s working great :+1:.
Have a look at BensaGlobalTrading, a multi-lingual site done with RWML. I have done this one for a client, simple basic site but it’s working fine :slight_smile:

+1 for localizer stack, quick, easy, painless to do.


(Monica Sayegh) #14

@TINO. Good to hear that! I should try it soon. Your site looks good :slight_smile:

Hi Monica, I have been using RWML for a while and its not complicated to use once you get the hang of it. The layout happens on your page and doesnt depend on other stacks.
If you need help I’d be happy to help you set up. Also Joost@Tsooj Media is very helpfull and will happily help you.
www.silence-of-touch.com is bilingual and uses RWML stacks.

Hi @anugyan. Thanks for the info and sharing your website, it looks great I really liked it :slight_smile: I see you used Foundation. I am currently using Foundry, for sure if I get a request to build a bilingual site I will for sure use RWML!
