Falang Integration

Featured Lock Resolved Task
Is there any possibility of integration with the Falang translation extension?

At present I have a site which uses this to enhance the translations on their site and I can use the Article Manager SPPB plugin to create a nice layout in en-GB but when I then click to edit the fr-FR version of the page, for example, I can only access the default Joomla editor, there's no switch to go between SPBB and the Default Editor?

I talked about it today, we don't plans with Falang , especially because Joomla 3.7
also includes a new component called "Multilingual Associations".
So we have to focus on core features not extra ones.

Hello there,

We have a great documentation about a multi-language feature for Joomla website. Check this bellow link :

https://www.joomshaper.com/documentation/helix-framework/helix3#how-to-create-a-multilingual-site

You may try with this Falang translation extension but we don't provide any support to any third party extension or template.

So you don't see any option in article section to edit it using SP Page Builder, right? Did you integrate Joomla article from SP Page Builder and enabled it? If no, please do so otherwise, You may send me your administrator login details via pm(personal message). Don't forget to send me this forum post URL.

Thank You.

hi Shibbir

Thanks for this - I'd already looked at the document link you provided which is for the default Joomla translation method. This is okay but means creating multiple versions of everything (4 languages = 4 modules, 4 menus, 4 articles etc.) whereas Falang allows us to create just one, then to create a translation for each without needing to create multiple items.

At present on a site which uses Falang then if i edit an article and use the article plugin to switch to SPPB and create my layout, then when I click to edit a translation of this page using Falang I am only presented with the default Joomla editor, there is no switch like in the Article Manager.

So it looks like the SPPB plugin only loads in the Article Manager and seems like it may mean that a specific plugin may need to be created to allow SPPB to be used in Falang, just as you created one to be used in K2. Would creating such a plugin be do-able, even as an additionally-purchased item?

Hi,
Simon if I may few worlds... in upcoming Joomla 3.7 multi-language feature was improved please check it (J3.7 RC is available) so you don't need Falang probably.

Ah, right, okay, will maybe hold out for that and see how it goes.

Of course the issue there might be if you have a site full of Falang translations you'd then need to go back through each one and take it out of Falang then put it into Joomla's default translation instead. But possibly better to be all part of the core anyway ...

Just to follow up on this a bit i've been speaking to Stephane, who develops Falang and he seems up for creating a plugin which might mean SPPB and Falang talking to one another so i think it would be good if you guys reconsider speaking with him to see what can be done?

Even the updates for the new 3.7 language management don't look as slick as Falang's implementation so it would be great to have a working plugin for Falang?

Does this mean that SPPB will be fully compatible with the new translations workflow?

I second this implementation of plugin for Falang of SPPB. We use extensively Falang on our website too and it is much better than native language handling by Joomla. We do use Joomla 3.6.5 though.
