Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


Publisher is the only multilingual and workflow module for ExpressionEngine.

Publisher Lite is also available. It includes all the same workflow features listed below, but no multi-lingual support. So if you’re just looking for content drafts and workflow, check it out.

Publisher lets you create drafts and translations of your entries, categories, and content phrases. No other module, or combination of modules, will compare to Publisher, and it is the closest ExpressionEngine will ever get to native draft and multilingual support. You will never manage your content the same way in ExpressionEngine again.

  • Preview your drafts in the control panel
  • View the differences in your text between published and draft versions of your content
  • Translates phrases and categories
  • Basic content approval process. Users can be assigned as a publisher or editor. Editors can not save content as open/published and must be approved by a publisher.
  • URL translations
  • and more!

Publisher can also be used without languages. It will install English as the default language, which can be easily changed, but if you don’t add additional languages it will operate only in draft/workflow mode. The language drop down menu will not show in the toolbar and you can still save entries, phrases, and categories as drafts.

Publisher requires the following:

  • ExpressionEngine 2.8+
  • PHP 5.3+

The following 3rd party add-ons are natively supported by Publisher, but they must be of the versions noted:

  • Structure 3.3+
  • Matrix 2.3+
  • Playa 4.2+
  • Assets 2.0+

We just installed Publisher on a pretty large site, and things worked very smoothly out of the box. It’s a really impressive Add-on that will likely be very useful for a few of our clients. And, support has been fantastic as we’ve had questions.

The more I use Publisher, the more I start loving it. After building various multi-language sites using different approaches and extensions Publisher is by far the best, easy to implement, stable, flexible and complete solution.
My advise: don’t look any further. You’ve found the only one solution.

We’ve just launched a rich media website translated into 9 languages.  If you are dealing with localised content, have to translate URLs or simply need a strong editorial workflow, Publisher is the way to go. A great plus: Brian’s timely and committed support, all the way up.

Have used pre-release versions of Publisher as well as those available here, all have been fantastic. This is the real way to do multilingual sites in ExpressionEngine.

I bought this for a client site that needed draft functionality at the moment and possibly multi-lingual support down the road. Worked great on my dev environment but ran into a problem with the live large data set. Submitted a support request and Brian responded in minutes with a fix and new ver.
