Managing Content in Multiple Languages

Scrivito now supports multiple language versions of your website content

Many, if not most companies with international operations present themselves to the public on websites in several languages, mainly to reach as many people as possible. If a company’s sites not only serve marketing and sales purposes but also, for example, as service portals for customers or partners, it is almost mandatory to make the content available in the languages the users are familiar with.

Running multiple websites in different languages without any administrative effort requires a modern CMS that is equipped accordingly. Scrivito is not only ideally suited for language-based multisite operation but now also supports editors with providing the different language versions of the content on the sites:

  • Websites can be linked together as language versions so that pages are automatically assigned the respective language.

  • Create pages or mark them as language versions

    Existing pages can be marked as language versions of each other, and new pages can also be created as language versions.

  • Scrivito supports you with your content workflows

    Scrivito recognizes whether the language versions for a page are complete and offers to create the missing ones by copying the source page to the target site and marking it accordingly.

This way, editors always maintain an overview of the language versions already available and are supported when translating or adapting content for the target websites.

Adding a language-specific site
Dialog for adding a site
Linking two sites
Quick creation of a language version
Two sites linked as language versions

Whether you’re translating content one-to-one from a source language into the different languages of your websites, or you have language, country, or culture-specific content, or a mix of all that – Scrivito significantly simplifies your workflow for creating and maintaining your website content in multiple languages.

Support for multiple websites and language versions requires an Enterprise plan.
