Multilingual functionality


Support for multiple languages is provided in respect of:

  • Interface (navigation menus, etc.)
  • Site content
  • Default language options


Translating and globalizing a web site is potentially costly and difficult to control.

To manage and organize your multilingual content at a cost that companies can afford, the tools are provided for managing the workflows associated with all aspects of content creation, translation, and publishing within a single web-based application.

The complexity and expense of translating and globalizing web sites is thereby greatly reduced.

A tight integration between a web site’s native-language content and translated content within one content management solution is available. Web editors can create and publish web content in one language while also handling all steps of the translation and localization process - using an in-house language expert or outside translation professionals.

Real multilingual site functionality allows users to go from one language to another on each page, without being redirected to the homepage.

Organizations can create and manage additional aspects of a multilingual web site including language-specific metadata, content collections, search functionality, list summaries, navigation elements, multilingual forms – unique for every language presented on a site.


Enables organizations to manage their content translation and localization processes:

  • Creates tight integration between a site’s native-language content and translated content
  • Workflow functionality enables translators to be assigned a task and access HTML content via the web to conduct translations.
  • Managers can monitor real-time progress
  • Each language version can have a different workflow and approval chain.
  • Built-in support of XLIFF (XML Localization Interchange File Format), an XML-based standard for content localization.
  • Content experts can create content, transform it into an XLIFF file, send it out for translation, and receive back a translated file that can be uploaded, managed and published.
  • A machine translation tool allows organizations to take advantage of "on-the-fly" translations that support their basic multilingual needs or to get a head start on their translation and localization projects.
  • Support for multiple languages in respect of:
    • Interface (navigation menus, etc.)
    • Site content
    • Default language options (e.g. for a German web site, by default German content can display where available, but, if desired, where German content is not available, English content can display)
