Key Features

The biggest advantage of using a CMS (content management system) for your website is the ability to control your content separately from the layout or design. With a powerful CMS like TYPO3 CMS you can add, change and remove text, images and plug-ins on your site without installing any proprietary software or paying a third-party. Because of the simple administration and editing tools in TYPO3 CMS, you can run and edit any kind of site, personal or business, without learning HTML, CSS, programming, or web design. There are other CMS solutions out there, of course, but TYPO3 CMS has some unique features that make it a great option for websites of any size, from small to enterprise:

Multilingual

A TYPO3 web site or application can be published and operated in any language in the world. Moreover, currently more than 50 localizations are available for the TYPO3 user interface and more translations can be added at any time.

Workflow, Versioning, Workspaces

With the use of workflows, internal approval processes can can be integrated with content managament, allowing editors to review the work of others before releasing it to the live site. Versioning functionality saves every change to your TYPO3 content and provides a seamless history and the possibility of returning to previous versions with the push of a button. With the use of Workspaces even large structural changes, such as Navigation or complex layout changes, are made on the fly providing TYPO3 with the power of integrated deployment.


Extensive functions for editors
