"The new Drupal website http://www.deutschland.de
is replacing three older sites that have been running on Typo3, a
hierarchical open source CMS very popular in Germany. The new content
concept, however, called for a more flexible structure, where editors
categorize articles in different systems (topics, world regions, tags)
and the site delivers topical streams of content for different kinds of
interests and in different languages. Drupal is the perfect match:
field-based multilanguage management, multiple taxonomies in parallel,
semantic content types. Drupal delivered most of what deutschland.de
needed out of the box.
A further reason for choosing Drupal was its flexibility and openness
when connecting to other systems. Articles are, for example, imported
via RESTful web services."
The cross-media Germany portal, deutschland.de, aims to present a comprehensive, modern and topical picture of Germany abroad.
