Thank you very much for choosing to evaluate Sitefinity and contacting us.
In order to create multilingual news items, you need to turn on the feature in your project web.config file. This is how to do it:
1. Find the <localization> section:
<localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" persistenceMode="None" defaultCulture="en" cultures="en, fr ">
First, you should set the persistenceMode attribute to either QueryString
to define the way URLs will be created.
Then set the default site language. Note that you can only have one default language per Web site. Once you have set the default language and started creating content items, you can no longer change it.
2. Find the <cmsEngine> section in the project web.config file and set the allowLocalization attribute to True:
<add name="News" visible="False"
Now you should be able to create different language versions of the news items and display them by switching the languages on the live site. Please look at the attached images for details.
You can find more information on multilingual support on p.141 of the User Manual.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further assistance.
