What's New in Drupal 8: Multilingual


This video was part of a series of presentations produced in anticipation of Drupal 8's official release. For information about multilingual sites based on official releases of Drupal 8, take a look at our Multilingual sites topic.


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:
