    Is there a way to enable multi-language support for modules created using the new module builder bundled in 4.4?  I've created a module for one of my multi-language sites, but I can't seem to figure out how to enable translations for it's content.  Is there a setting in the GUI to enable this, or is it possible to extend this new module to create support for this?

    Hello Shaun,

    Currently we do not support multilingual for the modules, created with the module builder. This feature will be implemented in the future versions of Sitefinity.

    Kind regards,

    Hi,
    I saw this post and I have a question about this.
    It means that custom fields can be translated later ? Because this type of fields works probably on same way that fields created by module builder.

    Hello,

    You are correct Nicolas, we aim at extending the custom fields to support multilingual content with our upcoming releases this year. At this stage we still haven't announced the feature in our roadmap, but we will do our best to include it in the second half of the year.

    It sounds well we are going to be able to relieve our forms by deleting duplicated fields for translation.

    We're working on a Sitefinity implementation that relies heavily on custom types of content with support to multi-language. When we first saw the Module Builder we were very happy about it, makes the job of creating custom content very easy but its major flaw to us is the lack of multi-language support.

    Do you guys have an ETA for this? In case you say Q2 or later, I'd like to get from you guys some direction on other ways we can go to have customized content with multi-language support. By the way, pls let me clarify what I mean by custom content, here is a sample of a content type we'd be using it: 

    - Title
    - Description
    - Classification
         * Categories (hierarchical taxonomy)
         * Services (flat taxonomy)

    As you can see, this is very close from some of the pre-define contents (i.e. news) but its got 2 categories... So, should we try to customize an existing type into our needs? Or should we try to tweak the code behind the content generated by the module builder?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks.

    Hello Wagner,

    Multilingual support for the module builder is planned for version 5.1 of Sifinity due around the summer in 2012. Until then I'm afraid it is not quite possible to have multilingual content in a module, unless you create a pair of fields.

    All the best,

    Just a quick question on the multi language support: If we were to create custom modules in Sitefinity 5.0, would an upgrade to 5.1 allow us to add multiple languages to those modules (automatically or through a tool)?

    Hi,

    If this makes it in 5.1, that is good news, because we're going to need it for a new project.
    What about multi-lingual documents? Ie: the ability to upload a specific file for each language of a given document. Will this also be in 5.1?

    Thanks.

    Hi 

    I have just tried sitefinity 5.1 and created a custom module using module builder. It still does not support multilingual content. Highly disappointing :(
