    I have difficulties with adding languages to my cms.

    1. On which level should I add them? Page or module level?
    2. How can I add them? (please no source code manipulation!)

    I'm looking forward to a non technical explanation since I'm a dummy on this.

    Hi jolijn bockstaele,

    The localization is disabled by default. You should enable it from your web.config file

    <localization defaultProvider="Sitefinity" persistenceMode="PathPrefix" defaultCulture="en" allowSpecificCultures="True" cultures="en, es, fr, bg, nl, it">

    persistanceMode - PathPrefix - adds the culture name to the url right after the application name or domain name

    defaultCulture - the default language for your websute

    cultures  - all defined cultures. Note that you should have translated resource for each other culture than en.

    You can find all available resources in this post.

    Sincerely yours,
