Drupal 8 aims to make the almost all of Drupal's underlying system multilingual while offering a toolset for modules and themes to rely on and support multilingual much easier than before. This session will concentrate on the site builder changes, since there are many other session dealing with the entity API, the configuration system on the API level, etc. where all the major changes happened.
There are new features for single foreign language sites and multilingual sites alike. This session will cover changes and improvements around installation, the language settings system, content language and translation support, software translation and configuration language and translation.
The ideal attendee at this session has some experience in Drupal 6 or 7 multilingual site building and want to get the scoop on what is possible in Drupal 8 core. Those who have no experience in foreign/multilingual site building will also get a lot out of it.
