This presentation outlines some of the major changes to the Drupal core multilingual system. A lot of features that were in contributed modules have been rolled into core, and a number of existing multilingual features have been greatly improved. There are a lot of cool new things to get up to speed with. In this video, we'll review:

  • New and obsolete modules
  • UI changes
  • Developer changes

After watching this presentation you should have a better understanding of the things you'll need to learn to get up to speed with the new multilingual features in Drupal 8, including things to watch for on the module development and theming sides.
