We built a nice, simple, easy-to-use site for our clients that gave them the tools they needed for discussions and a knowledge base. We set up a forum that displays only posts that are in the user’s language and a knowledge base book where all of the site members can create translations for the pages. The major need for this community was being able to use multiple languages and easily extend those languages in the future. Using Drupal’s core internationalization features with a handful of contributed modules, we have given them a very flexible multilingual solution. In this final lesson we'll tour the Blue Peak Fanatics site, discuss our implementation points, and review the modules and resources we used to build this site.
