This next post focus will be on configuring Drupal to use different languages, and then demonstrating how to translate content into the enabled languages.

Internet usage has exploded throughout the world over the last decade. More than one third of the world's population now has internet access. In 2012 2.27 billion people were using the internet, which is double the number in 2011. The ability to serve fully translated content to users is more important than ever. Translated content can help you to better market your brand in new regions, and can help establish your website as an authority on its subject matter. This is because it's seen by more users and is accessible to a larger audience.

Maps can be a powerful tool for sharing information.

A well built map can make data and ideas accessible to people in a way that is not always easy to do in words. Most of us use maps on our phones and in our cars to help us get around. What you don’t see everyday are maps being used to share dense amounts of information in easily accessible and highly informative ways. Maps can tell a story, or help influence the way we think, even motivate us to help with a cause.

E-mail notifications are the lifeblood of social networking websites. The proliferation of spam email and authorities that monitor servers sending spam is a seemingly never ending battle. Because spam’s increasing prevalence, sending email with “quality” headers is absolutely essential to successful delivery.

I recently worked on an issue with a custom built notification system sending emails and sms messages after certain events. Some of the e-mail messages were delivering successfully and others were not. Review of the code revealed the usage of drupal_mail_send, with improperly built custom headers, was causing the emails to deliver incorrectly.
