About the Book

Joomla! 2.5 is an amazing content management system. It has introduced multilingual features natively.

Many Joomla! developers face difficulties in configuring the site for multiple languages. This guide aims to solve the problems and show you how to configure your Joomla! 2.5 site for multiple languages.
