A set of tools that simplify handling multilingual content in Plone using plone.app.multilingual.
Disclaimer: This package is WORK IN PROGRESS.
Collective.multilingualtools is based on the concepts of collective/slc.linguatools, but this new package works with plone.app.multilingual and both with both dexterity and archetypes.
It aims to offer a handfull of utilities for performing the same action on all translations of an item at the same time, such as
change workflow status
rename (change id)
cut and paste (move)
set title / description from msgid
propagate or block portlets
set or remove properties (such as layout)
set or remove marker interface
Also, there’s an option to make a copy of any item to all available languages (or a subset), optionally copying individual attributes (title, description, tags, etc).
The interface can use more love for sure. Basically some information about the current object and its translations is dislpayed; below it a list of various possible actions.
After every action, feedback is displayed about the status, in this example after making a copy of a News item into 3 languages:
Plone >= 4.2
Refactor from formlib to z3c.form
Integrate more useful functions from other LinguaPlone-based add-ons, such as valentine.linguaflow
Use generic IFolderish interface, not an Archetypes-specific one
JS Bugfix: don’t rely on “jq” being defined [pysailor]
