Steps

Translations of a piece of content are managed with translation sets. Each translation set has one source post and any number of translations in any of the enabled languages. All translations are tracked to be up to date or outdated based on whether the source post was modified significantly.

There are two different approaches to adding a translation to a content item, both will result in the content item having a translated version.

Approach 1: creating a new translation for a content item

  1. Find the content item you would like to translate as described in the Finding Content section.

  2. Click edit next to the content item to get to its edit form.

  3. On the edit form of the content item, select the Translate tab.

  4. From the list of languages, select the one you would like to add a translation for and click add translation.

  5. Create the translated version as you would with any other content item (see Managing Content).

  6. Save your draft, send for review or publish. [Content Moderation and Approval] works the same way for translations as any other content item.

Approach 2: creating a new language version and adding it to an existing content item

  1. Create the translated version of the content item (see Managing Content).

  2. Find the content item you would like to add the translated version to as described in the Finding Content section.

  3. On the edit form of the content item, select the Translate tab.

  4. Select the translated version you created in the SELECT TRANSLATIONS FOR section. Start typing and the field will autocomplete. Only content items that have the right language and don't belong to other translation set will be available here.

  5. Click Update translations.
