DrupalCon Munich Training: Building Multilingual Websites in D7

Jul 22, 2012 · by Suzanne Dergacheva

In an increasingly global world, Drupal core's support for multilingual content has made it a favourite CMS among large organizations. Despite that, Drupal site-builders and develpoers are often stumped by the myriad of possible approaches and tricks involved in making it work. Over the last few months, Evolving Web has worked together with Acquia to put together a multilingual site building course to walk you through the process step by step and unfuddle much of the complexity.

In the last year, documentation of multilingual modules and core functionality have improved, with more documentation pages on Drupal.org and even a book on the subject by Kristin Pol. However, site builders, gave so many complex decisions that setting up a multilingual site for the first time can be bewildering.

The course will be presented for the first time in Montreal on August 10th and again at DrupalCon Munich on August 20th, and will cover a wide variety of topics including:

  • Setting up a Multilingual Drupal installation
  • Using different methods of content translation
  • Managing UI translation in Drupal
  • Assessing a module's multilingual capabilities
  • Multilingual building blocks: Views, Blocks, Menus, and Panels

For a sneak preview of some of the course materials, we invite you to attend a free Acquia webinar on August 8th, which will cover the content translation process and managing translation strings both in and outside of Drupal.

If you're interested, please sign up for the day-long training session at DrupalCon Munich, which costs 400.00€ and will be presented by Evolving Web and Gábor Hojtsy, the D8 Multilingual Initiative lead.

Hope to see you in Munich. Bis bald!
