Enable or disable languages for a content type

Created by Contensis product team, last modified by r.saunders on 12 Feb 2021

A content type is created in the default language of a project. If you have a multilingual license key, other languages supported by the project can be enabled for a content type.

Enable additional languages

With the content type open for editing:

  1. Select Properties from the actions menu in the content type toolbar to open the Details panel for the content type.
  2. Select the Languages tab in the Details panel. You'll be presented with a list of languages supported by the project.
  3. Toggle the languages you want to enable.
  4. Press Save and Publish for the additional languages to be made available for the entries in your project.

Follow our article on translating entries to start writing content in another language.

Disable a language

Disabling a language (using the toggle) for a content type will prevent any further entries being created in that language. Any published entries that have been translated will still be available through the Delivery API until they are deleted.
