Summary

Summary This chapter has provided us with a broad overview of the language support in Drupal 7. Let's do a quick recap of what we covered. First, we looked at the different ways to use Drupal's language support, and considered some potential questions to ask before creating a multilingual website. To further our knowledge, we considered a few realistic use cases for different web audiences. We then learned the special terminology associated with the world of Drupal localization. With our vocabulary enhanced, we moved on to looking at the big pieces of the Drupal 7 multilingual puzzle, namely, interface, content, and configuration. The user interface strings that need translation come from core and contributed modules and themes. For translating content, we narrowed in on data coming from entities. And, for the last piece of the puzzle, we saw that the remaining multilingual configuration involves many elements including handling blocks, menus, taxonomy, and views. The chapter concluded with a preview of the Drupal 7 modules that we'll use very soon. Now that we understand the big picture, it's time to get to work. In the next chapter, we'll keep ourselves occupied with language settings, interface translation, and general system configuration. If you are ready to go, let's move on and get busy.
