Localization and Translations API

Sitefinity CMS enables you, as content creator, to localize your site in as many language versions as required. By using Sitefinity’s multilingual support you can localize pages, content items, taxonomies, and so forth. Thus, you can address your site’s international audience and target a greater number of users.

Creating and working with multilingual items programmatically is very similar to the standard monolingual operations: create, query, modify, and delete. The major difference in managing localized content is that you need to specify the desired culture and pass it as a parameter to the appropriate methods.

This articles examines several common scenarios for working with multilingual items in a non-default culture and demonstrates the use of Sitefinity’s API through code examples. 


To view localized pages and content items from Sitefinity's backend, make sure you set the languages in which pages and items need to be localized in. For more information, see Administration: Language settings.
