Lets say I have a menu pointing to an article translated to both english and spanish.

How can I generate a link to the english page from the spanish translation?

I want to put a notice in all the spanish articles saying for example:

    There is an english version for this article <a href="index.php?Itemid=1086">here</a>

If this article gets loaded in spanish the link will point to the spanish article instead of the english article.

  • So you don't have an English article and a Spanish article -- you have one article and you want Joomla to switch the article language? Jun 23, 2018 at 1:35
  • Have you tried using the article button below your editor?

If you have a multilingual site and your articles are associated, enable Show Associations option in com_content configuration.
