Feature request - Add multi-lingual content feature

Reported by dleffler | March 19th, 2013 @ 12:35 PM

This feature would allow the site to better support multi-lingual content (we already support a multi-lingual admin interface).

Rough thinking would be some sort of dispatcher that would reference a 'content_expLang' record lookup for a assoc piece with the requested language. e.g., you ask for text item id =1, you are viewing on a secondary language of DE, and pull up the expLang where model = text and id = 1 to get a new text item id # for the DE version otherwise you go with the requested one.

There would need to be:

  • an interface to describe the base language since it wouldn't always be English
  • a setting to 'turn on' multi-lingual content
  • an interface to easily edit various language versions of an item...while a tabbed edit would be the most intuitive, it would make updating objects difficult based on how it's done now
  • a widget to select desired user language
  • a 'hack' to not only dispatch to pull the desired language variation of the requested item(s), but also for the menus
