Is ratp.fr the only website for Paris public transportation?

I'm having some issues with www.ratp.fr - it's very picky about recognizing addresses in the route planner. Also Chrome doesn't translate as consistently as I'd like.

Is there a better website for planning routes of all modes of travel within Paris (bus, metro, train, etc)?

I don't think there is.
It works pretty well if you enter the name of the station, not that good in other case.

I use it all the time for addresses without any real problems.
Could you give an example of what's not working well for you? Maybe there's a solution.

Have you tried used the mobile app (iPhone, iPad, etc.)? The app may be more user-friendly than the website and it is largely in English.

Thank you for the English site. Much better - although my high school French has been resurfacing through the French site!

I will be using the app when I get there. Right now I'm working on Plan B otherwise known as If My International SIM Card Doesn't Work and printing out some routes.

How about ViaNavigo, also an official site?
