Why Drupal is the Best CMS in China

Does Drupal Work in China?

Many global technologies suffer from infrastructural challenges or code-based conflicts when operating in China. Some are also unable to comply with local regulations such as the PIPL that addresses personal data protection and processing.

However, Drupal can work properly in China, with the help of Drupal experts to localize the functionalities and visuals while ensuring that your platform is 100% PIPL-compliant.

Why Use Drupal in China?

1. High Scalability

Drupal has an excellent structure, especially when built upon the Symfony framework, enabling Drupal sites to easily scale up vertically

2. Easy Content Authoring

Users can enjoy the intuitive interface and tools for ease of navigation, content creation, workflow, and publication to efficiently manage editorial workflows

3. Good Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)

Users can easily create, assign, and manage many roles in the Back Office with different responsibilities and accessibilities

4. SEO Support

Users can also leverage Drupal's powerful search engine optimization tools (e.g. Metatag) once the basic structure is set up

5. Multilingual

Drupal has built-in multi-language functionalities allowing users to add many languages, including core content translation Drupal modules

2. Security

Drupal is a proven, most secure CMS and application framework that can stand up to the most critical internet vulnerabilities
