Subject: Multilingual wiki
Hi everybody,

I'd like to customize dokuwiki to support 3 languages/3 different content (one per language) and I don't know how to do. I don't know if I can customize dokuwiki of if I should use 3 installations.

Let's say my website's structure is this one:

www.website.com/en/wiki/
www.website.com/es/wiki/
www.website.com/fr/wiki/

Any suggestion? What's the easiest way to do what I want?

Thanks in advance for your help :)

UP ;)

Few more explainations: I've integrate dokuwiki to my multilingual website:

see http://www.expat-blog.com/en/resources/ (english)
http://www.expat-blog.com/fr/ressources/ (french)
http://www.expat-blog.com/es/recursos/ (spanish)

the default language is english

The thing is that if you're going into any page within the french pages, the menu is displayed in english. Should I use URL rewriting in order to send a "lang" parameter to dokuwiki, or should I install 3 different versions (one per language)? What's the best solution?

Thanks in advance for your help,

J

Subject: Resources at the Dokuwiki Website
I can't help, as I am a total n00b. But we are doing something similar.

I have asked a question regarding multilingual sites that includes as many of the resources available at the Dokuwiki Website as I have been able to find.

There are helpful articles here also in making the decision of whether to have 1.) three different installations altogether, 2.) three installations linked to one databank, or 3.) one installation with multitemplates and the data separated by your use of namespaces en:titleA:titlea sp:titleA:titlea fr:titleA:titlea. It seems every one of those options is possible. (Reference 1.) http://forum.dokuwiki.org/thread/253 , 2&3.) http://forum.dokuwiki.org/thread/70 .)

My own question is found at http://forum.dokuwiki.org/post/1500 It contains specific links to some multilingual articles in the main dokuwiki website that you  might find useful. I hope any discussion there may also prove useful.

Sorry can't be more help.
