Topic localization lets you quickly create locale-specific versions of your topics and topic sections for each language locale you support. Localized topics/topic sections are added as equivalent children to the parent topic/topic section they are based on.
This article walks you through adding a localized topic or topic section and gives an overview of managing topic locales in the platform.
Things to Note:
- To add a locale-specific version of a topic or topic section, you must have at least one active Locale enabled for your account.
Add a Localized Topic or Topic Section
Navigate to Topics in the expanded admin panel. Select an existing topic or topic section to create a locale-specific version of that topic/topic section.
Follow these steps to create a localized version of a topic or topic section:
- Open the locale drop-down menu in the header.
- Select Add New Locale.
- Select an active locale from the locales list.
- Click Add Locale.
- A localized version of the topic/topic section is created and ready to be translated.
Manage Locale-Specific Topics
When you create a locale-specific topic/topic section, a parent-child relationship is created between the original, parent topic and the locale-specific version, or child topic.
Select the locale drop-down if you need to return to the original, parent locale or to switch a different child locale.
