About the Book
Joomla! 2.5 is an amazing content management system. It has introduced multilingual features natively. In earlier versions of Joomla!, you had to use third-party extensions to make your site's content multilingual. In Joomla! 2.5, you don't need third party extension to do so. However, configuring a site to use more than one language and showing its content in more than one language is not so easy task. 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.
