Hi All,

I searched around but keep finding discussions about this relating to pre SS 3.x, so just wanted to ask:

What is the best current solution/hack to add multi language support for my installation of SS 3.0.1? I want to add just one more language to my site at the moment.

If anyone can point me in the right direction to something that's likely to work, that would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

This is compatible with 3.0 :) http://www.silverstripe.org/translatable-module/

If you are prepared to pay for it then the best solution I have found is Multilingual found here... [url]http://www.kreationsbyran.se/blogg/multilingual-module-2-0-for-silverstripe-cms-3-0[/url]

This has a different approach and does not duplicate the page tree (with all its side effects). Instead it maintains alternate versions of all important data objects in parallel and uses them as required. Switching the editor is as easy as hitting a flag.

Translatable module (http://addons.silverstripe.org/add-ons/silverstripe/translatable) works perfect, if you need translated sitetree objects. It creates new sitetree records and "links" them to eachother.
Another approach is adding database columns to your existing records, for this I found Fluent module to work a treat: http://addons.silverstripe.org/add-ons/tractorcow/silverstripe-fluent
Both are 3.x compatible.
