Multilingual

Drupal’s built-in language handling abilities deliver value to those who need localised digital experiences, saving them time and money in the process. Building multilingual sites is now faster and easier than ever. Four core modules in Drupal 8 allow full translation of every part of a site. Quickly build everything from customized sites in any language to complex multilingual web applications with dynamic, language-based displays, using multiple admin languages and translation workflows--all in Drupal.

Drupal: The Multilingual Platform

An international community of developers has built and maintained Drupal for more than a decade. It has been adopted by multinational organizations around the world, enabling them to quickly launch online experiences tailored to a variety of language needs. Drupal 8, the latest version, was created from square one with multilingual use in mind.
Translate Everything

Translate Everything

Administrators and customers don’t always speak the same language. Drupal not only offers complete content translation workflows to allow businesses to talk directly to their visitors. It also gives individuals who work on the site--administrators, content authors, translators--the choice of their own interface language. Every part of the interface itself can be translated or customised to match your needs, too.

94 Languages

Run Drupal in Your Language

Drupal 8 can be installed in 94 languages, without the need for installing any additional components. You can choose your site default language and English can be turned off or even deleted if you don’t need it. Multilingual sites can dynamically display not only translated content to their visitors, but even entirely locally-tailored information, different page-layouts and -elements, based on customisable factors like browser language. Language information forms part of search results and can be exposed via Drupal’s Search API.

More Languages, Fewer Admin Headaches

Drupal was designed with multilingual use cases in mind. This includes making the life of site administrators easier. Once installed, language packages can be securely, automatically downloaded and implemented without overriding your customised translations. Custom translations can be packaged and deployed across multiple properties. The built-in translation interface provides an overview screen for translators, integrates plural handling, and is responsive--like the rest of Drupal --allowing for on-the-fly access or fixes from any device.
