    The company I work for currently have our website in 4 different languages. We currently have a set of Wikis in English but we now have the same WIkis in the three other languages. Is it possible to group the English version of the Wikis together and then group the other versions for the other languages together so that when a Russian speaker for example comes to the website they can view the Russian Wikis as opposed to the English version?

    Kind regards,

    Hello Fran O'Prey,

    The Wiki module does not support localization. You need to create a custom public control that shows only the items based on CurrentUICulture.
    The easiest way to do this is creating an additional metakey which will indicate the item culture ( User Manual page 219). This metakey will be used as an unique identifier so that the Public control Wiki View will be populated with  proper data.

    You need to crate a custom control that inherits from Telerik.Wiki.WebControls.WikiView and override CreateDataSource() where you can return an List of items filtered by your custom metakey. You can use GetContent method with IMetaSearchInfo filter.
