    One of the new features for 3.7 is described as "View and Create permissions for different language versions."  I can't find any details on how this works or where I should look to set that up.

    Please help me understand this feature.

    Hi David,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Unfortunately this feature is not available. We were going to release this with this version, however due to some last minute found issues we did not put it in the release. I guess we had overlooked the release notes when we uploaded them and did not edit them properly. We are sorry for the confusion cause.

    This functionality is still not ready for release, as we have a couple more things to polish up. Currently we are not able to provide a specific time frame for when this will be available.

    Sincerely yours,

    Hello Udi,

    This feature is not yet implemented as it has extreme regression potential.

    Hi,
    I am about to migrate a site onto Sitefinity 4 and I was told during a Sitefinity demo/training session that it was possible to restrict user permissions so that site editors for a specific language can only see their language version and not all.
    Can you confirm if this is possible? If not can you recommend anything we can do to enable this functionality?
    Thanks.

    Hi James,

    This is planned to be included in Sitefinity out of the box by the end of the year. In the meantime there is a solution that we can propose to you. Some of our large customers use this approach currently. This solution here has two aspects:

    • Securing your language versions so that an author that does not have permissions to modify them is not able to do any changes
    • Hiding the different languages from your system

    I am attaching the full source code, along with more detailed instructions and explanation, but here is the short form:

    You can secure your language versions with a Custom Workflow activity that checks for some sort of rules. In the code sample provided I use a custom field in the user profile. An administrator is able to enumerate the languages that a particular user has permissions for. The workflow would secure any actions done to a restricted language version (You would need to have custom workflow enabled in your Sitefinity license for this)

    The second aspect - usability - is done on a back-end control level. I've added a few of the ways that you can tweak your back-end to accommodate a setup where just one of the languages is visible(Hiding the language labels, changing the default language, etc.). 

    For more details see the attached file and check out the instructions.

    All the best,

    Svetla
