Social Package

Over the last several years, social media has become a dominant force in online media. Based on the number of extensions interacting with various social media APIs, it would be logical to build a Social package for the Joomla! Platform that provides a common and simplified interface to post and retrieve data from various social media networks.

Joomla Translations

Create a centralized translation tool, which will be a kind of Facebook Self-Translation App for Joomla! communities to have better translation.

The centralized website will make better translations for Joomla! It will help non-English speaking translation teams to get feedback about translation quality from people, who speak the same language. So translation teams can involve more volunteers in translation process. It will help also extension developers to translate their software. It will enable ability to submit a new extension translation INI file in English and get the translated version from the translation teams.
