So far we’ve got a nice start with getting our site translated, but everything is not quite smooth yet. We have translations for some of our content and menu items, but we're seeing all the content at the same time. You will also see some stray interface text still in English. To take our multilingual site further and really make it shine, in this lesson we're going to turn to a package of modules called Internationalization (i18n). There is a central Internationalization module, which comes packaged with a handful of other modules designed to work together to extend core’s multilingual features.
