Displaying Content Translations in WebCenter Portal (Doc ID 1665962.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 14, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Portal - Version to [Release 11g]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 There are three main types of information that are displayed in WebCenter Portal:
 o User interface (UI) elements, like field and button labels and seeded boilerplate text
 o User-entered metadata, such as portal and page names
 o Content added by users, including announcements, documents, and discussion forum content

Out-of-the-box, WebCenter Portal provides runtime translations for 28 languages and 100 different locales and provides a capability to add further more. Additionally, the Administrator's Guide provides details steps to translate UI strings or metadata under the section "Managing a Multi-language Portal".

Where content added by users is concerned, it is generally in the language  of the contributing user, i.e., a Spanish user will contribute content in Español while the language and locale settings are set to Español. So, translation of content is usually not an issue except where the same content must be made available is multiple languages by the contributor (usually the Portal Administrator).

This document describes a simple way to accomplish this task by making a task flow visible to a pre-determined language setting. As a part of this document, a Content Contributor will add content in English and in Español and update the task flow such that only language setting relevant content is rendered as users toggle between languages.



This document is intended for use by Content Contributors and users with privileges to update component settings.
The tasks described in this document may be used for rendering other task flows similarly.
