Introduction

This guide demonstrates how to change the language of a guide page.

Requirements

You must have Translation features activated on your site to perform this function.

You must also be have site Administrator user privileges in order to change the Language ID of a guide.

Why is this important?

If you have Translation features activated on your site, you can create guides in multiple languages. Each guide created will then have a Language ID, which will match the language that the author was viewing the site in when they created the guide.

It is important that the Language ID of the guide matches the actual language of the written text of the guide. This ensures that your users are not confused by mis-matched language and text.

The Language ID is be noted in the corner of the guide thumbnail on that guide's category page. Your users will be able to browse your site in the language of their choosing, and guides with that Language ID will display in the category.
