Kentico CMS websites can have their content translated into multiple languages. In a multilingual website, there are separate versions of documents for each language. Individual cultural versions of the website may be displayed to users automatically based on various settings, while users can also switch between individual cultural versions of a website manually using a dedicated web part.


The list of all content cultures available in Kentico CMS can be found in Site Manager -> Development -> Cultures. All major cultures are provided in the list by default. These cultures can be assigned to websites, whose content can then be translated to the respective cultures. More information on configuring a website to use multiple content cultures can be found in the Configuring multilingual content topic.


In the Displayed language selection topic, you can learn about configuration that determines which one of the available cultures will be displayed to registered users and website visitors when they access the website. To learn about URLs under which individual document language versions are accessible and with which they are rendered, please refer to the Languages and URLs topic. In the Translation management sub-chapter, you can find descriptions of various features related to website content localization.


The user interface of Kentico CMS can also be multilingual. To learn about localization of Kentico CMS UI, please refer to the Development -> UI cultures and localization chapter of this guide.
