Multilingual Wiki

How to build a set of translations

To associate pages together, you will find a button "translation" in the page bar (where you find the edit "button"). In the translation page, you must specify a language for the object if not already done and you have to enter the page name of another page of the same set of translation. As soon as the page belongs to a set, you will see all the pages of the set. You can add more pages in the set if you want. Each new page must have a valid language field.
