The LanternFish


Translate as easy as possible

The LanternFish is a fresh, but mature translation manager for Joomla!. It replaces Joomla multilingual capabilities with a different system that gives you much easier and the most useful way to manage your site translations at one single place.

Mature translation manager for Joomla!

Currently compatible with Joomla up to 3.9


  • Manage translations in a single interface that shows an original and a translation at the same time
  • Only translate fields that need translation and automatically reuse those that don't (e.g. images or links)
  • Speed up translations by using Google translate (requires very cheap API key purchase)
  • Optionally translate and associate (translation with original) items directly from the native interface (inline translations for core extensions)
  • Supports all core extensions and large number of 3rd party extensions (using Joomfish content elements)

See original text and translation in a single interface

Site users friendly:

  • Instant switching between languages that takes you directly to the same page in a different language
  • When translation does not exist, either original item or a predefined message is shown. Optionally you can also chose to remove untranslated items from lists (list view, blog view, menus etc)

Extra feature:

  • Joomfish migrator - plugin for JupgradePro to migrate JoomFish translations from Joomla 1.5. to 2.5./3.x

    Comparison with JoomFish

    LanterFish is a fork of Joomfish 2.5. that was substantially bugfixed and re-written for Joomla 3, while maintaining Joomla 2.5 compatibility. It is essentially a bugfixed and enhanced version of JoomFish.

    Biggest advantages of LanterFish when compared to the JoomFish are:

    • working frontend editing of translated articles.
    • Joomla 3 compatibility
    • Joomfish migrator - JupgradePro plugin that migrates Joomfish for Joomla 1.5. items to LanternFish (or Joomfish 2.5.)
    • Missing translations plugin - plugin to optionally replace missing article translation with message or mesage plus original text.
    • An option to hide untranslated menus and remove untranslated items from lists


    A LanternFish?

    Lanternfish is a deep sea fish that glows in the dark, or simply as the name say, it's a fish with a lantern. Let there be light.
