In our "Introduction to Joomla Multilingual Sites" you learned what multilingual sites look like, what companies or celebrities use them and their advantages and disadvantages.
In this blog post, you are going to review different approaches to building multilingual sites. There are many different ways to build a multilingual Joomla site, but these are three of the most common:
- Approach #1: Use Joomla's core features
- Approach #2: Use different websites for each language
- Approach #3: Replace Joomla's core features with a third party extension
The choice is not always straightforward. So in this post, you'll take a close look at all three approaches. You then will learn which of the three we recommend.
