Welcome to the gsoc16_improved-multi-lingual wiki!

Project goal

The goal of my project is to improve a multi-lingual site's back-end, meaning that besides having several content (articles, menu items, categories, contacts, etc.) separated by default, one can associate content languages with those items side-by-side to avoid tedious replication tasks of going back and forth to apply changes.
