Hello.

I'd tried to post this in opensourcecms.com but no luck.
I had tried a CMS that support multi-language, but we only need to write once for create an article. When we create an article, there are 2 or more textarea, each textarea is for each language. So we just need submit once.
BUT, I forgot what is that CMS.
Does somebody know?

Coz, I wanna build a tutorial site that has 2 language so user can switch the page to other language.
The key is: write once for multi language.

I hope someone could give me idea what CMS should I try.

Many thanks before.

Welcome to WebmasterWorld doniking.

You might be able to customize a CMS to do that, but it doesn't sound like something I've seen standard. For example, if you used MovableType there's a plugin called RightFields that lets you add additional fields to the interface. You might be able to add your 2nd language fields there.

If not, Do you know any CMS that if we switch the language on article with some id, the page changed to other language but no redirect to home page, still sticked to that id?

Thanks

I meant, 1 article content can have 2 or more language.

I know Joomla has this. But I dont want to use Joomloa.
Could drupal do this?

I think what the poster really means is that he wants to have one URL for a given page, regardless of language (with a session variable or URL parameter controlling language) and the CMS should support an arbitrary number of multiple translations of the same content in the database.

Without this, it would be rather messy to keep track of.

I can't imagine that any major CMS doesn't support this - especially given that most of the popular open-source CMSs were written outside of the U.S. (About the only place in the world where we assume that everybody speaks our language.)

You may have to go digging through add-on modules, though, in some cases, to find the feature.
