This thread is dedicated to support of yvTransliterate plugin.
yvTransliterate is Transliteration
plugin for Joomla! 1.5, and it's free. The plugin transliterates article aliases, that are used in Search engine optimization (SEO) for creation of Search engine friendly (SEF) slugs (URLs).
It takes into account "Content Language" of the article. And it may also be used by any other Joomla! extension to transliterate text strings. Language packs are supported: they contain transliterations for additional languages.
yvTransliterate doesn't require any hack to the code of Joomla!'s core: you simply have to install one plugin and as many yvTransliterateLanguagePacks, as you need.
This plugin is the result of the work, that was started in March 2007 (see the thread
). I hoped, that this _real_ Transliteration functionality will be inserted in Joomla! 1.5 core,
but it's not there yet (see 'Language slugs transliteration
On 2008-07-17 yvTransliterate has transliteration for Russian language only, and it has 'Language pack template', that may be easily adapted for new languages...
Now we'll see, how many people really need transliteration (I'm expecting new language translations
with transliteration for different languages).
yvTransliterate has open and simple interface, that uses special triggered event.
