Different URLs for languages

Postby [email protected] » Sun May 15, 2011 2:28 am

I'm using Joomla 1.6 with AceSEF and I bought GTranslate.

I only need 3 languages for my site, and I need to be able to manually choose the URLs for all my pages, which I already can do for my main language using AceSEF.

My main language is french. ~40% of the pages are in English and ~10% of the pages are in Spanish.

Also, I need a language switcher button which will point to the respective page in a different language if it exist, and redirect to home page if there is no translation. (yes, I want some pages to remain untranslated).

So to sum it up, I want to know how to :

- Have a language switcher button that points to the respective page
- Different URLs for all language (not only in a /en folder, but also a different filename
ex. french : www.mysite.com/patates.html
www.mysite.com/en/potatos.html
www.mysite.com/es/papas.html

- ...and if the page has no translation, the language switch link needs to point to the respective language's home page.

Thanks!

Mixed content is not a problem, you can turn on language auto detect feature...

The language switcher can be customized to do what you need.
You can use .htaccess to make the rewriting of the URLs.

You can use it on your localhost, you just need to configure your hosts file to direct your domain name to your local server.

AceSEF is compatible with GTranslate Pro.
