Kentico multi-language website document management

Sujith S B asked on February 15, 2016 13:48


I have a document type 'ImageGallery', with fields 'Title' and 'Image'. This is a multi-language site with 3 different languages and one is English version.

My requirement is once I add a new document for 'ImageGallery' in English version, it should added on the rest of the language versions.

What are the feasible solutions for solving this problem?

Could you please suggest the best method?

Thanks and Regards,

There is a setting "Combine with default culture" this will use the default content culture when another culture is not (yet) translated.

You can find this setting here:

  • Click the Settings module
  • Click the Content node
  • Scroll to the Multilingual section
  • enable the Combine with default culture

This will however work for all your pages.

If you want it specific for this page type I think you should have a look at custom events:

After a document is created you could check if its of type "ImageGallery" and insert an non translated version for other cultures. This however involves custom coding.

Hi David,

Thanks for the detailed reply. I have configured my CMS as you suggested. But it is not working for me.

Please find the details and steps

  • Configured my CMS as you suggested. Please find my settings
  • Created a document in 'English language version'.
  • Taken the document on 'Japanese language version' and it shows the message that 'The document does not exist in the current culture. You can create a new culture version of the document'.
  • Please find the video that contains my steps

Could you please help me on this issue?

Thanks and Best Regards,
