concrete5 implements a really powerful and flexible system to manage websites with multiple languages (or better, locales).

Every language has its own home page, and all the pages in that language are children of that home page (in concrete5, pages are structured as a tree). The home and its child pages is often referred to as a **multilingual section**.

You can manage the multilingual sections in the *Dashboard* -> *System & Settings* -> *Multilingual Setup* page.


When you have to edit a page written in a certain language that you don't know, you would like to see the system elements (for instance the texts *Edit Page*, *Add Block*, *Edit Properies*, ....) written in a language you know.
For this reason, in addition to the languages used in the web pages (called **site locales**), concrete5 defines the the language to be used in the system elements (called **UI locale**).

You can configure the UI locale in the *Dashboard* -> *System & Settings* -> *Basics* -> *Languages* page.
In this page you can configure the default UI locale, but if you check the *Offer choice of language on login* option, you'll let every user have his own locale.

ok, can you give me a simple example of how to configure multilingual? I tried yesterday adding spanish and copying the site tree from english to spanish but I have to check the option show system files in the Sitemap section, but it doesn't work well. What do you suggest?

Thank you

So, knowing that bug exists what is the correct way of having 2 languages in C5?

Thanks

What's broken is the function that copies of the site trees between languages.
You should still be able to add pages to the site trees (or copy the pages one by one).

It does work, but the pages aren´t shown well, and the auto-nav widget shows wrong pages

Desperate regards

Hi Bettina!

I *think* this has been recently fixed.
You can test if this work by using the `develop` branch on GitHub (or wait for concrete5 8.3.0 Release Candidate 2 - which I think will be released quite soon).
