Change Language

[changelanguage]

Allow the visitor to switch between different languages of a page.

The idea is, that you have a multilingual site created with typolight. One of the website-roots has to be used as the fallback-language. I do also assume that this fallback-language contains the majority of pages. For example the fallback language is german. Another language is english, with some pages, that are missing in the german version.

How to

In the first step, you create the site structure of you fallback-language. In the second step you define the root for a new language. By adding a regular page to this new language, you find a new selectbox called “Fallback-Page”. This selectbox shows all regular pages of the sitestructure of you fallback-language. Now you can select the page that corresponds to the one you just created.
If there's no direct pendent, just leave the selectbox at “No equal page”. The user will then be redirected to the start page.

The last step is to create a ChangeLanguage-Module and add it via the page layout or as content-element.

Release notes and change log for 0.6.0

Release 0.6 adds a few interesting features:
  • If there is no fallback for the current page, the module no longer directly links to the root page but reversly searches the page tree for a higher page with language fallback.
  • Support for module newslanguage has been added. This allows to switch between multiple languages of a news item.
