How-To Part III: Making Your Site Multilingual

Imagine that your new, award-winning website (siteaccess “new_site”) has been well so well received that your boss now wants to have it available in Chinese as well. We simply add another siteaccess (“chinese_new_site”) which will use the same data, but with different language settings.

1. Copy the 'new_site' directory under settings/siteaccess, and rename it to 'chinese_new_site'.

 

2. Edit settings/siteaccess/chinese_new_site/site.ini.append.php to show only Chinese:

[RegionalSettings]
TextTranslation=enabled
Locale=chi-CN
ContentObjectLocale=chi-CN
SiteLanguageList[]=chi-CN
ShowUntranslatedObjects=disabled
 

3. Alter access-related settings :

[SiteSettings]
SiteName=Public site two in CHINESE
SiteURL=localhost/ez-4.3-webin/index.php/chinese_new_site
SiteURL=example.com/index.php/ chinese_new_site # (or chinese_new_site.example.com) ?
IndexPage=/content/view/full/176
DefaultPage=/content/view/full/176
RootNodeDepth=2

MetaDataArray[copyright]=John Doe co.ltd
MetaDataArray[description]=This is my public website number two in CHINESE, out of two on the same eZ instance
MetaDataArray[keywords]=Public website two in CHINESE, multi-siteaccesses with eZ Publish
 

4. Edit settings/override/site.ini.append.php, adding

[SiteSettings]
SiteList[]=chinese_new_site
 
[SiteAccessSettings]
AvailableSiteAccessList[]=chinese_new_site
RelatedSiteAccessList[]=chinese_new_site 
HostMatchMapItems[]=chinese.example.com;chinese_new_site
 

5. Add chinese as a language for editors : navigate to Setup > Languages from the administration interface.
