Writing Multilingual Content

Perquisite for writing Multilingual Content is

  1. Configuring Localization Add-Ons
  2. Configuring/Creating Localized Fields

After you successfully configured your AddOns and Fields now you can go to the Contents from the top of the navigation and select your configured model. Then either publish or edit an existing content, you will see similar picture like below. In the picture you can see two tabs English & Portuguese because we configured our Description fields will be Multilingual and will have support for both of those languages. You can now switch tabs to write different content


Always remember you can only update or publish content for one language at a time. For example. If you are publishing or editing a contents for both of the languages and during the update or publish you are in the English tab then only the changes made to english will be updated. if you made and changes to Portuguese content, it will be ignored.

But to save both you have to switch tabs and click publish for each of them saperately.
