MULTILANGUAGE SHOP WITH MULTILANGUAGE PRODUCT DESCRIPTIONS
« on: November 15, 2011, 20:09:55 pm »
Hi,

I read all threads but I can't believe none has yet implement the feature to handle a shop that support some languages so for the same product can be stored many different descriptions (one for each language). Obviously I don't want any web translation, because it's not professional.

Does anyone have some hint to give me in order to get this kind of Shop ? I'd like to start directly using VM2 and Joomla 1.7

For Joomla 1.5.x and VM2 there already is an available solution with Joomfish. When using Joomla 1.7.3, the cart language already does switch along with your language file. Just start building your shop. By the time you've  learned how to use all the new features in VM2 in your native language and have your 500 products including descriptions and images displaying nicely in your new VM2 shop, multi-language categories and product descriptions will be possible when using J1.7.x/VM2, too.

You can't expect every imaginable "nice to have" feature from a small developer team in a brand new software that still bears the RC status.

Meanwhile VM2 is multilingual for both, J1.5.x and J1.7.x. See here: http://virtuemart.net/news/list-all-news/412-virtuemart-rc3-is-released. You can find some more information about this if you search the forum for terms like "Joomfish" and "multilingual" and limit your search to display only posts i.e. for the last 30 days.
