Welcome to Going Multilingual in Sitecore. I had the opportunity to help one of our clients add mulitlanguage capabilities to their Sitecore website. I had a hard time finding a simple guide that walked me through the process, so I documented my journey and am sharing here.
Sitecore has the native capability to present content in multiple languages and can maintain multiple versions of content in each language. In part 1, I walk through the setup of adding a language to your site and enabling language fallback. In part 2, we edit content in multiple languages and look at the translate tool. In part 3, I’ll show you how to restrict access to content authors by language. In part 4, we’ll examine our templates and see the power of shared fields to reduce content entry.
I’ll update this post in the future as I add more topics such as SEO, avoiding duplicate content and workflows. Be sure to follow me to get notices about updates! Thanks for reading, and be sure to leave me comments or questions, I would love to chat with you about Sitecore.
