A set of tools that simplify handling multilingual content in Plone using

Project description


Disclaimer: This package is WORK IN PROGRESS.

Collective.multilingualtools is based on the concepts of collective/slc.linguatools, but this new package works with 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)

  • reindex

  • delete

  • 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
