Can I write articles in my language?
Can I write articles in different languages?
Textpattern’s administrative interface has been translated to more than 40 languages – see below for a list.
You’re not limited to writing articles in those particular languages. Textpattern uses UTF-8, so you can write articles and create page templates in any language represented by Unicode. There’s no magic trick to this: just make sure your browser supports UTF-8, and write away. You can mix languages within an article — for example, quoting some French text in a German article, or using characters from other languages in an English article, as demonstrated in the list of languages below.
Textpattern doesn’t directly support articles with multiple translations. You can use sections or categories to organise a multilingual site. If you use one section to represent each language, you’ll be able to assign a specific template and/or CSS stylesheet to each, which might be helpful if some languages have specific layout requirements. If you’re already using sections for your site structure, create categories to represent languages.
To use a language with right-to-left text direction, such as Arabic, you’ll need something like this in your CSS stylesheet:
direction : rtl;
