Managing Content Translations

eZ Publish can be used to build websites with content in multiple languages. Site visitors can select a language and see content in their preferred language. Supported site languages are configured  when the site is installed.

Translating content

To translate content, select the language for which you want to create translated content. (In the default site design, the language selection links are in the top left corner of each page.) Browse to the content that you want to translate. If no translation exists for the existing content, the content will be displayed in the site's default language.

For example, say you have an article that you wrote in English, and want French visitors to be able to read in their own language.

  1. Access the French siteaccess.
  2. Access the content you want to translate.
  3. Click on the Edit button on the Website Toolbar.
  4. Now you see the article written in English. In the drop-down box on the Website Toolbar, choose the language you want to base the translation on (only English will be available), and click on the Translate button next to it.
  5. Write the content in French, then click on the Publish button.

The content is now available in two languages: the original language (English) and also French.
