The Future of Web Content Publishing in the Canadian Government with Drupal WxT

Drupal WxT is a version of Drupal designed for the Canadian government and organizations with bilingual and accessibility requirements and represents a faithful implementation of the Web Experience Toolkit/Boîte à outils de l'expérience Web (WET-BOEW).
