Fast and Easy
User friendly translation interface built for translators
We have spent a lot of time developing a translation interface for translators. We have studied some of the worlds most popular translation tools and copied the best features from each.
With the Neno translation interface you do not need to take your hands of the keyboard as most actions have keyboard shortcuts. As you save one translation the next one pops up automatically. Translating can be a tedious job at times, but working with Neno makes it fun and easy.
Smooth installation and setup of component and languages
Installing Neno should take no more that a few minutes. You can download Neno from here (no registration required) or install it directly using web install from within Joomla. During installation you will be guided to setup your site correctly and be offered to install and configure any languages you likes.
Better performance than any other solution for Joomla.
Before Neno, all other translation solutions for Joomla were created in a way that meant some performance decline could be expected in the translated content on larger sites.
The way Neno stores and retrieves translations means that there is little to no performance decline. This is achieved by creating and maintaining shadow tables for all content that has the same index structure as the source language table. Neno simply loads directly from the shadow table instead of the source language table.
Flexible and powerful
Translate yourself or easily order professional translation
One of the unique features of Neno is the ability to order professional translation directly from within the component interface (please note that you can of course also translate yourself using the very smooth translation interface). Please note that to order professional translation you must have sufficient funds in your account.
It has never been easier to get your web site translated by professionals. We work closely with two of the worlds largest translation agencies (Gengo and One Hour Translation) to provide the best possible translation quality for your web site. Simply click the order button and your content will be sent to the translators. When the translation is completed (usually within 24h to 48h) it will automatically be added to your site.
Automatically translate new or changed content
You can set up Neno to automatically send new and changed content to machine and/or professional translation as it is created.
This powerful feature allows you to focus on only generating and publishing great content in your source language as all the translation work is done automatically for you.
Acme Consulting works mainly in Switzerland and wants to have a strong web site in German and French. Lately however they have started expanding into Italy but it is not an important market for them.
Acme Consulting develops all content in German and configures Neno to send all content to be professionally translated into French and Machine Translated into Italian. Except for their very popular forum which would be too costly to professionally translate for Acme, so the forum is excluded from profesional translations.
Full control over what and how content is translated
Neno automatically organises your content into groups. This makes it easy for you to manage what content should be translated and how it should be translated.
For instance, it is easy to set it up so that all Joomla core content is translated to Spanish internally and French by external translators while the blog is translated using manual translation for both languages. It is also easy completely remove components, database tables or language files from the translation queue.
Translate both database and language file content
When Neno is installed it will scan your database and file system and automatically find and recognise content that should be translated in both the file system and the database.
You are in full control of what will be translated and what translation methods should be used (manual or professional).
Most other Joomla translation solutions will only translate the language files or the database content.
Translate any core or 3rd party extension
With Neno both language files and database content can be translated. 3rd party developers do not need to supply a "content elements" file with their components (although they can) as our technology is flexible enough that any web site owner can configure what should be translated from each component. Even if you develop your own component (with for example our sister service http://www.component-creator.com) Neno is able to translate it, right out of the box.
Full overview of translation progress
From the Neno dashboard you are able to see the overall progress of each language you are translating to. Additionally from the groups and elements view you can also see which areas of your site is in need of translation.
With Neno, you always know what needs to be done and how far in the process you are.
