Features and functionality
The following are features that become available when multiple languages are enabled on your digital workplace.
All digital workplaces require a primary language. This is the language that will be displayed by default before a user chooses their preferred language. All content will need a version created in this primary language.
The language selector allows users to choose their preferred language to be displayed. It appears in the upper-right corner of the Userbar.
You can include translations of your content for each of your supported languages. You have the option to create the translations manually, or use the Google Translation feature included to translate titles, summaries, and body content. You are required to include a version in your primary language.
You can specify the titles of Pages, Spaces, and Channels when editing them, or through Quick Edit in the Site Manager. This will also determine what appears in search, navigation.
A Widget’s Title and Description can be manually translated into other languages by clicking the translations icon located on the bottom right of the text box.
Only languages enabled within your digital workplace are available.
Manual translation can also be done on the following Widget attributes:
- Search Box Widget: Custom search text.
- Add Button Widget: Custom button text.
- Call to Action Widget: Title text, Secondary text, and Link text.
- Links Widget: Link title text, and Group title text.
