Plugin Description:

This plugin adds multilanguage support and hierarchical menus to your website.

Note: I18N is the abbreviation of internationalization (18 characters between i and n)

Just add an underscore and the two-letter language code to a page's name/URL to specify its language. Go to the new I18N view on the admin pages tab to get an overview of your pages and their available language versions and find out easily, which pages need translating.

This plugin will always choose the best page based on the user's language settings and will fall back to the default language if no translation exists. It also supports manual switching of the language by storing the desired language in the session.

This plugin also offers functions for multi-level hierarchical menus (e.g. top level menu in the header and other levels in a side bar) and breadcrumbs, which are of course internationalized (and cached, which means fast).

You can also create a (HTML) sitemap with this plugin.

The admin page for editing was much enhanced to easily select the parent page and the position of the page in the menu.
