Multi Language Module Now Free For Everyone

18 June 2013

The Multi Lan­guage Mod­ule has been free for non-profit organ­isa­tions since it’s release nearly 4 years ago, but as of today we are mak­ing it a free add-on for per­son­al and com­mer­cial use as well.

Multi-lin­gual func­tion­al­ity in Expres­sion­En­gine, as with any CMS, is plain tricky. Due to the vast num­ber of require­ments and pos­sib­il­it­ies that a CMS needs to handle there is to this day no sil­ver bul­let add-on for solv­ing the prob­lem. We developed the Multi Lan­guage Mod­ule ori­gin­ally for our own needs since no oth­er add-ons provided the func­tion­al­ity we required at the time. Since then many oth­er add-ons have been released to tackle multi-lin­gual func­tion­al­ity, includ­ing the excel­lent Tran­scribe by EEHar­bor and Pub­lish­er by BoldMinded.

While we are proud of the Multi Lan­guage Mod­ule and have had great feed­back from people about it, the add-on is a bit out­dated and really only suit­able for smal­ler sites with less demand for multi-lin­gual func­tion­al­ity. So for that reas­on we are mak­ing it a free add-on for every­one to use as you wish. This also means how­ever that the add-on will not be fur­ther developed and that sup­port requests will get second pri­or­ity after com­mer­cial add-ons.
