Language communication is a group of phrases in different languages having the same meaning.
The Bitrix Framework allows using the same template for several sites on different languages. This opportunity is realized by means of the message files mechanism:
- areas intended for text displaying are defined in the template HTML prototype (for example, titles, ALT attributes, controls text etc.);
- then, special source code should be placed in these areas that calls language files containing necessary text messages on corresponding language.
For example, table headers, button inscriptions, component messages, etc. may be created using language communications.
Note: language communication feature is also used to support multi-language interface of the administrative section of the system.
