    Hi all,

    What would be the best way to create a multilingual Dynamic Content Item through code? I have a source table with some records that have both english and dutch translation which I need to import into a Dynamic Module. Can I do this at once?

    I know how to add an item with a default culture. But how do I add the second culture in the same procedure?

    Hello Daniel,

    I am attaching an approach for adding multilingual to the modules that are not hierarchical (NewsRoomArticles, NewsRoomDocuments), refer to the attached (

    The form uses the approach from how hierarchical data items are created from NewsRoomGallery sample
    Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = enCulture;
                DynamicModuleManager dynamicModuleManager = DynamicModuleManager.GetManager();
                Type testType = TypeResolutionService.ResolveType("Telerik.Sitefinity.DynamicTypes.Model.NewsroomContent.NewsroomArticle");
                //create the item in invarian culture
                DynamicContent testItem = dynamicModuleManager.CreateDataItem(testType);
                Guid itemId = testItem.Id;
                //assign its values in specific culture and publish
                using (new CultureRegion(enCulture))
                    testItem.SetString("Title", "Some Title", enCulture);
                    testItem.SetString("UrlName", "SomeUrlName", enCulture);
                    testItem.SetWorkflowStatus(dynamicModuleManager.Provider.ApplicationName, "Published", enCulture);
    // perform the same for additional languages

    I am also attaching a sample of Module Builder Language Version Creator.  Hopefully this helps.

    Please feel free to write back to me if you need further assistance.
