Hi Sebastian,

Thanks for responding. I appreciate the help.

I tried rolling back my website from a backup, then upgrading to 7.4.1 and trying again. This still made a made a mess of the site, where even fewer pages were converted in the foreign language. I'm not sure if this has to do with the fact that I built the site on 7.4.0 and originally enabled Content Localization in the Host Settings.

I'm going to try a fresh install of 7.4.1 and manually building a single language site on that using page templates from my original site. Hopefully when I turn on Content Localization/languages, it'll work properly this time.

Thanks,
Chris

I would turn on Content localization as early as possible (before adding many pages in first language.

Hi Sebastian,

Thanks again for responding and providing that information. I'm having a challenging time understanding the 'Best Practices' of enabling Content Localization. I found this blog article which seems like a pretty good outline - http://www.dnnsoftware.com/community-....

However, the article seems to imply that you start with a complete single language site then turn on Content Localization (in both the Host Settings and Languages) and let DNN create localized copies of the pages.

Are you saying that it's actually best to turn on CL at the very beginning (such as after installing DNN but before adding pages)?

I am currently starting with a fresh, clean install of DNN 7.4.1 and was planning to recreate my site page by page (using page templates) as a single language (English) site. After that I need to add translations for a couple languages. Down the track, I'll probably have another 2 languages I'll need to localize for as well.

Given that scenario (which others might commonly have), at what point do I enable Content Localization - i.e. before I start building the English site, after the English site is complete and I've added my first 2 languages, etc.?

Thanks again for your help,
Chris

Chris,
there are known problems adding languages to sites with many pages, therefore it is more advisable to enable content localization for the site as early as possible.
