XOOPS 2.3 & 3.0 - Best multilanguage module

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.

Re: XOOPS 2.3 & 3.0 - Best multilanguage module

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..

Re: XOOPS 2.3 & 3.0 - Best multilanguage module

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.
