Internationalization (i18n)

Internationalization in computer science means the process of making a computer program ready to support many languages (have the interface translated in to different languages which the user can select according to his/her preferences, showing content or menus for some languages but not others, etc.).

TIP:
It is often also known as "i18n" (since the word internationalization is quite long, but is the most common word starting with an I, followed by 18 more characters, and ending with an n: i+18+n = "i18n").

A similar approach was followed with the word localization (the process of making a new translation for a local language in an internationalized software) as "l10n" (= l+10+n).



Overview

Tiki was designed to be multilingual since the beginning and is nowadays translated to over 35 languages. The standard out-of-the-box Tiki installation is designed to work in a multilingual environment. If ever you encounter any problems, please consult with your ISP or server administrator to make sure your database is configured to supports UTF-8 character encoding (which almost certainly the case).

The list and the status of the strings translations for the Tiki interface are updated on: http://tiki.org/i18n. The strings are the messages and the menu labels.

As an administrator, you can build a monolingual site other than an English one or a multilingual site.
As a user, you can view a multilingual site in you favorite language, and have pages translated into other languages. Starting in Tiki2, it is MUCH easier for your community to keep wiki pages updated and synchronized among all translations. Please see: http://wiki-translation.com/Cross+Lingual+Wiki+Engine+Project
