Provides support for multiple languages on site. Anyone could make own translation by changing the page text inline and share with friends. This way the community driven translations of web application will extend the application audience beyond of initially targeted countries and lingual dialects.

  • language preferences for selecting order of vocabularies
  • Languages menu entry for preferences, displaying selected vocabularies.
