What this book covers

What this book covers Chapter 1, Multilingual Overview, Use Cases, and Modules, starts by exploring issues, considerations, and example use cases for multilingual websites. Then, to get more familiar with the topic, technical terminology, a Drupal architecture overview, and a preview of Drupal 7 modules are covered. Chapter 2, Setting up the Basics: Languages, UI Translation, and System Settings, gets us set up with a test site, so new languages can be added and detected. With languages in place, the chapter addresses Drupal interface and string translation as well as general system configuration such as countries, dates, and variables. Chapter 3, Working with Content, is dedicated to handling content translation using two different methods, namely, node translation and field translation. Use cases, trade-offs, and issues are discussed for both methods. The chapter includes how to work with built-in content pages such as the default home page. Chapter 4, Configuring Blocks, Menus, Taxonomy, and Views, deals with configuring these standard Drupal components. Language-independent, language-specific, and multilingual configurations are handled, and implications of node-translated versus field-translated content are discussed. Chapter 5, Panels, SEO, and More!, goes into advanced topics including Panels, SEO, translation management, theming, and module development. Appendix, Modules, Resources, and Getting Involved, provides a list of modules used in the book as well as additional multilingual modules and a handy overview table on key module usage. Other resources provided include online documentation, forums, ways to get involved, and plans for Drupal 8.
