Drupal 8's new and improved multilingual tools open a world of translation capabilities for users of the Lingotek Translation contribution module for Drupal. The majority of Drupal 7's contributed multilingual modules have been replaced with just a few Drupal core modules - making D8 more multilingual out of the box. Lingotek builds on top of that increased functionality to offer users a complete translation and localization experience.
In yet another case of “what you don’t know actually can hurt you,” DocOps is the latest process poised to up-end your content-management world. If you haven’t heard of this DevOps adaptation, you need to, especially if you hope to compete in the race to globalize.
DocOps borrows DevOps’ collaborative, just-in-time, iterative process and applies it to content for seamless delivery across the enterprise and customer base. It eliminates content silos once and for all, creating a win-win for workers, customers and the bottom line. The tech industry has been talking about the democratization of content for years, and now DocOps just might be it.
The tech industry is working hard to destroy the virtual Tower of Babel. If you only speak English and Skype a Spanish speaker Microsoft will now translate your conversation in real-time. Google Translate will soon recognize popular languages and text you an instant translation.

Remember the days when the biggest user interface (UI) challenge was how to get your website to work both in Internet Explorer and Netscape?
It’s a matter of opinion whether those were the good old days or bad old days, but one thing is clear.
