Drupal 8 Multilingual Awesomeness! — Video Available

If you've heard anything about Drupal 8, I'm sure you know that building multilngual sites will be so (SO!) much easier. You won't need 20+ community modules like in Drupal 7 to make everything translatable. You will just need a small number of core* modules to do most (maybe all) of what you need.

We'll discuss:

  • Installing Drupal 8 in different languages
  • Adding and configuring languages
  • Translating node content
  • Translating other entities like taxonomy terms, menus, and blocks
  • Overview of what's left in the issue queue and how you can help

* We are still hoping to get the Configuration Translation module into core! Help out with this issue if you can :)
