Latest News, Special Offers and interesting reads on Technology & SEO from JV-Extensions!

We have been experimenting with different approaches for providing language translations for our products. After a long search, we have finally zeroed in on providing machine translation files for our extensions. As a first step, we have released the machine translated language files for JV-LinkExchanger 3.2 version for site frontend, which can be downloaded as a zip file in JV-LinkExchanger Downloads (My Account - My Downloads) section.

Please note that these are machine translated, and hence we strongly recommend that you review the files and make appropriate changes. English language file is also included in the zip for you to refer to and make translation changes. If you wish to submit the translated file with the community, then you may please upload it in our support forum.

We also do not recommend translating backend language files of our extensions as they are too many strings to be translated. Hence we are not providing any machine translations for them. Nevertheless, if you still want to translate them, then please download the JV-LinkExchanger component zip file from, and translate the file in admin/language/{en-GB} folder to your language, rename it and move it to the appropriate language sub folder accordingly.

JV-LinkExchanger 3.2 foreign language files are now available in 8 languages as of August 2017. These include Czech, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Hindi, Italian and Swedish. Do let us know if you need translation in a specific language other than what we provide.

I am writing this with utmost grief caused to my city - Chennai, the biggest metropolitan city in south India which has been devastated due to very heavy rains and water flooding in the last one week. It has been the deluge of the century in Chennai that has created havoc and left thousands of people homeless, and several dead. People including women and children are clamoring for food and shelter. The entire city has been struggling with no electricity and mobile/network connectivity for the last 6 days and the loss is assessed to be in several millions of Indian rupees. It is a complete standstill, and there are all out efforts from the central and state governments, Indian army, navy and air force to evacuate people and provide relief. Help is pouring in from all over the world to the affected people and rehabilitate them.

We at JV-Extensions have decided to donate 60% of the revenue we will make this month towards the relief work. I am requesting you to help Chennai limp back to life with your heart felt donations, which will be donated to the Prime Minister Relief fund, and also procure food and relief material for the affected people. Chennai has lost several lives, homes and infrastructure in this carnage, and I personally appeal to you to help those who are going through the calamity and those who are surviving it. I humbly request you to help Chennai with your generous donations. Even $10 donation from you will make a difference. Please click on the "Donate" image below to start donating.

Big data hadoop

The big data phenomenon has brought with it numerous challenges to the data management landscape. As the government, businesses and other organizations continue rapidly generating data, the need to collect and analyze the same has become more urgent. Big data is not only about volume but also how this data is used to improve productivity in any setting.

The traditional database management systems have become overwhelmed as more data becomes available and sadly, this has resulted in reduced analysis of available data. If for instance a healthcare organization was to leverage big data through a capable database, it would be easier to cut costs, predict disease outbreaks and also make the entire healthcare more efficient.

Enter Hadoop

This is where Hadoop comes in handy. This is an open source storage platform that is gradually changing big data management. It provides an excellent data management solution for big data. Initially, it was mostly used by large web 2.0 companies but it is now being adopted by all types of businesses. The framework supports scaling out to process large data sets.
The importance of Hadoop basically lies in its ability to help businesses make decisions based on a large set of data and other variables. As a business owner, you are able to get a more comprehensive view of your target audience without having to use multiple analyses. If you are a website owner or a database manager, it is important to get insight on Hadoop in order to leverage its capabilities.
