One of our partners, Web Translations, recently announced a cool new service called Click 4 Translation.
Why is this cool? With Joomla + Nooku Content, the technical side of having multi-lingual content was already covered, but now the actual translation gets easier as well. This service tightly integrates with Nooku Content and helps you with the translation into another language (or five or eight like some of our Nooku clients’ sites!)
How does it work? Just as always, you publish an article or add content to your website, in your local language. With the click of a button, your content is emailed to translators who will send back the translated files in the required languages of choice.
We think that’s pretty cool: it will help allow customers and readers to have more multi-lingual conversations, just like the real world. Let us know if you want to integrate other web services with Nooku Content, so website developers and content managers can make really great websites!
Hummerbie, after seeing Nooku Content in action at the Dutch Joomla conference, was so impressed he wrote an elaborate post about it on his Joomla SEO blog:
“Hold on, I can hear you think, what about the language specific URLs? Strange formed URLs, Not translated Titles, not translated Meta-tags like descriptions, keywords etc etc…
Now this is where Johan and Mathias really impressed me!
(…) The title that was translated was indeed translated also in the HTML Title, but also the URL itself was automatically rewritten to that language title version.
You also get the possibility to translate your meta tag description and keywords into the translated version… so you really get a translated version of a content page in a really Search Engine Optimized way.”

Joomla! 1.5 and Nooku are making some serious waves in the international sphere. This month saw a front page feature story about Joomla! 1.5 in a Turkish magazine. The Joomlatools team has been approached by a couple of high-tech magazines to feature Nooku Content. The first interview (currently underway) will be with Johan Janssens, covering basic questions about Nooku Contentand how it works and where it can take your international Joomla! 1.5 presence.
We recently exhibited at a technology show in London where there was a lot of interest about Joomla combined with Nooku Content. This was a real milestone because the show was mainly attended by software vendors providing proprietary solutions. Two members of Joomlatools left the stand to conduct a quick ‘survey’. What they discovered was that out in enterprise-land there is very few comparable CMSs (Content Management Systems) as flexible or as powerful as Joomla! 1.5 and light years away from what can be achieved with 1.5 and Nooku Content combined.
