Mutli-language on custom module

Ken Nicholl asked on February 23, 2015 04:53

Hi, I'm evaluating Kentico with the intention converting several projects to use the Kentico CMS.

I've created a simple custom module that contains 2 fields that need to be translated; Name and Description. Both fields have their "Translate Field" option selected.

What is the standard practice to implement the necessary functionality for an administrator to view and edit custom module data in multiple languages?

Can this be configured via the UI, or do I need to create ASPX pages for listing and editing that include a control to switch cultures and take care of data retrieval and saving myself? I haven't been able to find any documentation on this subject.

What you're talking about with the "translate" field is simply for UI display purposes and editing.

It can be configured through the UI to edit in v8 multiple ways but ultimately, you'll need to add a class to the module and ensure is has a culture field. This will use the Site Culture Selector form control. This should get you what you're looking for.
