In our bi-weekly team meeting Charles Nurse
gave a live demo of alpha code for work being done in content localization. Exciting stuff, especially for our international audience, some of whom received their own live demo today from Shaun Walker
at the Eurpoean Day of DotNetNuke
Especially for english speakers, its easy to forget how important content localization is. Many, however, are starting to realize that multi-language sites are not only imporant overseas but also very much in the US. The US federal government as well as many states require government (or even government subsidized) websites to provide content in multiple languages.
DotNetNuke has long supported localization of static content, with Language Packs
available in some 65 languages (that we know about). Folks have been creatively managing multi-language module content for many years, but it's finally becoming part of our supported core offering.
Many thanks to the Internationalization Team for their patience and long hours of collaboration to assemble a robust solution.
