After installing the internationalization add-on, new settings will be available to you in the Concrete5 Dashboard. In the previous guide in our series that covers working with the Internationalization Add-on we discussed the multilingual content setup, this tutorial will cover the Multilingual Settings available using the Internationalization Add-On in Concrete5. You can set your default language, or specify what language page to load automatically.
How to Work with Multilingual settings:
- Log into your concrete5 dashboard.
- Click the Dashboard button on top.
- Under the Multilingual section, click Setup.
- Scroll down to the Multilingual Settings section.
||After you have set your default language, and your multilingual pages, this drop-down box allows you to select your default language.
|Attempt to use visitor's language based on their browser information.
||When this option is selected, your Concrete5 will attempt to gather browser information, and load pages in the language that matches the visitors language.
|Redirect home page to default language section.
||If the previous setting is not selected, Concrete5 will load the default language page. If the previous setting is checked, Concrete5 will try to determine and load the site in the user's default language first, if it cannot identify the default language of the visitor, it will then load the default language page.
Congratulations, now you know how to work with the Multilingual setting in Concrete5. Continue to our next tutorial which will cover copying a language tree.
