Multiple default cultures

James Rowlinson asked on April 29, 2014 09:01


I am currently working on a site which will be split in to multinational branches and will be available in multiple cultures. The default culture of the site is set as 'en-GB' as that will be the fall-back for the majority of the site however on some of the country specific branches the content may only be available in the culture associated with that country branch(the branches default culture will be set as a document field on the branch node).

Is there a way to have a cascading system so that content will be served first in the current user culture, if that is not available it will be served in the default culture, if that is not available it will be shown in the culture associated with the current branch of the site, if none of these are present it will 404.

Many thanks

Maybe I'm missing something, and also last time I worked with multilingual sites on Kentico was on v6, but that's exactly what the default culture is for.

I'm not sure how exactly Kentico figures the current user language, but I think it looks at the browser's culture, which depends on the browser and OS, is set in different ways. I remember seeing a thread that lists the exact steps by which Kentico is figuring which language to show.

What exactly is your problem?
