This is a TYPO3 extension that allows an editor to select a specific language when linking to a page or (free) content elements in the TYPO3 Backend.

When do I need this extension?

Big instances with multiple page trees and loads of languages per tree might bring trouble when allowing to link to a page in a different language.

The simplest way would be to link to the login page in a different language, with an automatic redirect.

However the real strength of this extension pays off when having multiple page trees with different languages to link to a properly available news.

The extension shows a specific button for each language that is available for this page, when linking an image, or linking a text in the Rich Text Editor. The language selection is always enabled when the extension is installed, no configuration needed.

Linking to "free mode" content elements

In addition, linking to a specific content elements which are in a specific language is also possible in the link picker for pages.

How to install this extension?

Use composer req b13/link2language or install it via TYPO3's Extension Manager from the TYPO3 Extension Repository using the extension key link2language.


The extension is licensed under GPL v2+, same as the TYPO3 Core.

For details see the LICENSE file in this repository.
