I am planning to create a website using XOOPS 2.3 Final (hopefully it would be upgraded to XOOPS 3.0 in the future). The website will be available for 3 kinds of languages: English, Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese. The URL may look like:
http://www.ABCDXXXnet.com/index.php?en-US (English)
http://www.ABCDXXXnet.com/index.php?zh-CN (Simplified Chinese) and
http://www.ABCDXXXnet.com/index.php?zh-TW (Traditional Chinese).

Since there are many modules for creating multi-language XOOPS website and some are even incompatible with XOOPS 2.3 and later XOOPS 3.0, would anyone suggest the best/most appropriate module for my purpose? I decide not to use either XOOPS 2.0.18.X or 2.2.X.

Thank you all for your help!

Thank you for your suggestion. Is it work with UTF-8 unicode since the website uses unicode as its base coding?

Thanks.

Do synergy or die.

yes from my experience in my site ...

emlh from gijoe is still the best
http://xoops.peak.ne.jp/md/mydownload ... easiestml_lang=xlang%3Aen

and i really think XOOPS 2.3 or 3.0 should have it own core multilanguage feature..

Thanks all!

EMLH is much easier and compatible with UTF-8.

I have installed xlanguage but lots of errors are resulted. It seems that its default coding is GB2312 for Simplified Chinese and BIG-5 for Traditional Chinese. For UTF-8, many errors are resulted. Maybe there are many modifications needed in order to get it work for UTF-8. So I quit and change to use EMLH.

I also suggest that XOOPS, as international CMS, should have multilanguage feature built in its core.

Thanks a lot!

I tried EMLH in xoops2.3, and it worked good, but when I use EMLH in a XOOPS 2.0.18.2 but I didn't get Expected result, nevertheless I did what is explained:
1- edit easiestml.php in this archive as you like
define('EASIESTML_LANGS','en,fr');
2- copy easiestml.php into XOOPS_ROOT_PATH/include/
3- open mainfile.php and insert a line like this:


// XOOPS Virtual Path (URL)
// Virtual path to your main XOOPS directory WITHOUT trailing slash
define('XOOPS_URL', ...);

require XOOPS_ROOT_PATH.'/include/easiestml.php' ; // insert this

// Database
// Choose the database to be used
define('XOOPS_DB_TYPE', 'mysql');

4- edit the other entries in CONFIGURATIONS of easiestml.php

But When I write code like this [en]English part[/en]
[fr]French part[/fr]
in my wb site, I see exactly [en]English part[/en]
[fr]French part[/fr]


Even [mlimg] doesn't display flat french and english flats,

Where did I make a mistake?

Thanks??

I support that idea. As this is very simple solution, it shouldn't be hard to incorporate it in the basic installation plus add a block for selecting the languages.

Make sure that in System-Preferences, gzip is disabled. EMLH won't work with gzip enabled, I had the same symptoms until I found this.
