Getting Started: Multi-language Enhanced
The eCommerce market is growing exponentially, with cross-border online shopping estimated at $105 billion in 2013. This growth is expected to continue with the advancement and affordability of technology throughout the world. However tempting, it is important to prepare your online store before the world comes knocking at your door.
Arastta comes with a lot of enhancements in the multi-language area. Multilingual SEO URLs, login panel, manufacturers and language override are just some of them.
Having a multilingual admin interface but without an option to select the language during the login process is one of most ridiculous features OpenCart ships with. As seen in the above screenshot/video, Arastta comes with such a feature in the core.
I suppose I don't have to write here about the importance of SEO. While OpenCart doesn't care about, we do and have added super cool SEO features to Arastta. One and the most important of them is the multilingual SEO URLs which means you can have your SEO URLs translated based on the active language. For example product.html in English, prodotto.html in Italian. The SEO URL is also generated automatically if you leave it empty, based on the product, category, information, manufacturer name. Here you can find more about the robust SEO features Arastta ships with.
One of the most wanted features for OpenCart was to make the manufacturers multi-language. Arastta comes with such a feature built-in so you can translate your manufacturers in different languages including their SEO URLs and Metadata.
Stay on same page
Arastta ships with another must and cool feature so that when you change the language in front-end, you're not redirected to the home page as with OpenCart but to the respective page translated to the new language.
As Joomla veterans, we love its Language Override feature as it saves a lot of time. As you can see from the above teaser, you can change any language text on the fly without hacking files and updates won't affect your change in any case. You can search and filter any string with ease. Also, the changes are stored in files which makes no affect to the performance.
Unlike with OpenCart, the translations of Arastta are totally free, just as with all other CMS platforms like Joomla, WordPress etc.
