jDiction is a translation component for Joomla 2.5 and later, its designed for managing multilingual content. The main focus is the simple management of 1to1 translations. jDiction integrates perfect into existing Joomla installations and extends them with its own language selection modul and direct integration in to the existing administration-interface. Further more it offers an import and export function for translating a complete website with Excel or LibreOffice Calc with CSV Files or XLIFF for professional Translation Software. The integration into 3rd party components is simple, it only needs a XML File with some metadata, this file could be created easily. jDiction does not supply a automatic translation. jDiction is GPLv3 licensed.
The reason for jDiction was the need for a working translation component for Joomla 1.6, because Joomfish was not available. So the basic concept is inspired by Joomfish and here is my thanksgiving for the Joomfish developer team and the great Joomfish project I used for 1.5 Website. jDiction it self is completely written form scratch with an except, the sqlparser. The basic concept of jDiction is to intercept SQL queries and replace the results with the translated one.
