    Hi Himanshu Jain,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Let me apologize for the inconvenience of not being able to find the appropriate information. The missing articles from the User Manual have  been noted and the manual should be updated soon to have them. In the mean time here is how you should enable localization for Generic Content based modules:

    1. Make sure you have enabled localization for your project and set  defaultCulture attribute in the application web.config to allow site localization first:
    <localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" persistenceMode="PathPrefix" defaultCulture="de" cultures="de, fr, en"

    2. Find the <cmsEngine> section in the application web.config file and set the allowLocalization
    attribute to true - you can do this for each Generic Content provider.
    <cmsEngine defaultProvider="Generic_Content"
    <add name="Generic_Content" 

    Setting this enables you to create versions of the content items for all the site cultures and
    display them by switching the languages in the selector on the live web site.
    3. Create an item in the default site language
    4. Change the language.
    5. Click Edit this language version.
    6. Create the new language version by entering the language specific content in the content area.
    7. Click Save changes.

    Metakeys are also localizable. You need to set localizable="True" for each key you want to localize. Let us know if there are any further questions.
    Kind regards,
