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

Project description

Introduction

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.

Purpose

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).

Interface

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:
