 A website is basically made in English and users from non English speaking countries suffer through a lot to translate the content. And as it is said, some things are lost in translations and many terms and ideas are lost when users use crude tools to translate the page.

Joomla offers many extensions and tools to give access to in built translators in a website so the Web Developer can moderate the content that is translated while keeping in a close check that no information or bits of codes are lost while putting the text and content through translators.

Here is a list of the top 5 Joomla language extensions that every user swears by.


The Joom!Fish  is a language extension module that allows you to exert total control over the translation of the Website’s Joomla content. The Web Developer can translate any content to and from any language with the free extension available and with Joom!Fish 2.1, the Web developer can also exercise control over third party extensions.webmaster_tips_018_-_welcome_to_joomfish_-_www_joomfish_net.png

GTranslate: URL: 

The GTranslate  module is a must have for all web developers with its extensive list of languages to translate into. With over fifty eight languages it has a reach to over 98% of the internet users. The GTranlate has various versions compatible with all versions of Joomla like Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7and it makes the content of the website known worldwide with a large language base. The GTranslate uses Google power to translate and then hides tabs and suggestions over foreign words that prove a hindrance to many users. 

Translations manager:

The Translations Manager  is compatible only with Joomla 1.5 but despite this limitation, it is a powerful extension every Web Developer must be aware of. Once the Translations Manager is downloaded on your website, it manages all language related content. The Translations Manager will not translate the language but checks the translations for correct usage, proper grammar and makes it an easy and must have tool for websites.


The AjaxWtranslate  translates the website content into fifty six different languages. It is compatible with Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7 and uses Google API and Ajax technology. The most important feature of the AjaxWtranslate is its ability to locate specific HTML blocks that do not require and translation and hence saving much distress to users and common mistakes such errors can incite.


 The M17n  module is different from other modules as it does not translate your web page but makes it into a multi lingual one without hacking into different Joomla components of the page. It is easy to download and with all the information it needs within itself, its implementation is quick and extremely fast. A must have tool for language translators as it occupies less space and is very useful.
