  • The steps needed to implement multi-language support on Pages

Overview

Many brands must deliver content across multiple languages, and Pages makes it super simple to implement multi-language support.

Only two steps are required to implement basic multi-language support:

  1. Set up language profiles for Knowledge Graph entities
  2. Configure Streams to accept multiple profiles

We’ll give a brief explanation of each step, and then walk through creating your own multi-language version of Turtlehead Tacos (our demo site) in the following sections.

ml pages overview

Knowledge Graph Language Profiles

Knowledge Graph entities support language profiles, which allow you to set up language-specific field values. In the case where a location entity has an English and a Spanish profile, the description field could be written in English and Spanish respectively.

You can think of a language profile as a separate view into an entity, where certain fields have different, language-specific values. The Knowledge Graph imposes rules on how field values relate across entities, and you should go through this Hitchhikers module for further details.

Streams for Multi-Lang

Streams supports simple access of multi-lang fields through the top-level locales field. By specifying an array of desired language profiles in your stream config, Pages will automatically generate screens for each language profile.

The beauty of Pages multi-lang support is its simplicity. Once you have configured language profiles in your Knowledge Graph, you can easily access the field values in your front-end code without any extra work.

In the next two units, we’ll walk you through how to set up multi-language support for Turtlehead Tacos.
