Atto multilanguage plugin

Release Supported


The aim of this plugin is to facilitate the creation of multilingual content, forgetting the awkward method present from many versions ago.

There is an existing plugin that makes this easier, developed by Iñaki Arenaza, but only for TinyMCE editor. So, we have found necessary a plugin for the default editor of Moodle to perform this task.

The implementation of this plugin has been based on the mentioned TinyMCE plugin, using also Iñaki's other plugin, the multilang2 filter.


Above mentioned Iñaki Arenaza's filter_multilang2 is required.

    Thanks Julen for sharing this plugin with the community, and thanks for prompt responses to raised issues in your github issues tracker. I was able to successfully test the button functionality, with just some minor issues reported. I am happy to approve this now. Good luck with further development and fixes - you are cleared to land now. Welcome to the Plugins directory!

    Thanks for the work on this- this is a fantastic idea. Multilangfilter2 is really great and a big improvement over the previous version. However, this particular atto integration does not seem to work well for me. In fact, I had to uninstall so that I could use Multilang2 again. With the atto plugin in place, the editor would highlight my tag and prevent me from editing it. As soon as I included the bracket "{" the problems began. I had this behaviour even after disabling the highlight feature in the settings dialogue. Finally, I could not configure the languages I wanted the atto plugin to display to the user. Do you have a manual that can address these issues? I'd be willing to give this another try if I can get it to work, solving the above problems.

    Thanks again for all the hard work!
