     1== AboutThisPage ==  
     3This page is more a kind of a technical planning document for the multilingual relaunch of the website for the FOSS Project DeepaMehta 
     4which shall be located at the web address The latest content related planning documents are to  
     5find at our [[|new dummy page]]. 
     7The website team concerned with this relaunch tries to share their current main considerations on the technical buildup/configuration of the website on this page. 
     9== Multilingual Setup == 
     10For the launch of our new site English (as default langauge for all kinds of visitors) and German (for visitors with a german browser setup) could be fine. 
     12Drupal7 allows language detection based on the visitors browser configuration, per URL, per Selection (Session), per configuration related to a logged in user. 
     14'''Proposal:''' activate language detection in drupal for the visiting browser and it would be great if the website reflects these settings in the url with a e.g. prefix ~/de/frontpage for german frontpage resp. ~/en/frontpage for english frontpage 
     16'''Proposal:''' when reading a page i would find it cool if there's a link, read this page in "spanish" if it's there resp. "translate this page to x"..  
     18'''Question:''' how can a person of the community add a new translation for a new language? is it good practice to just start with a configuration of some of the big languages, e.g. arabic, chinese, russian, egyptian, spanish, french?
