Enabling Multilingual Support for Individual Fields

Before you can send content directly from Drupal TMGMT to Lionbridge, you must enable multilingual support for each field in each content type that you want to be able to send to Lionbridge for translation.

Note: By default, enabling multilingual support for content types automatically enables multilingual support for all the fields of that content type.

By default, the Connector supports sending out all the fields in the following default content types for translation:

  • article
  • basic page
  • translatable node

You can configure other, custom fields for translation.

Note: Lionbridge does not guarantee that other, custom fields are supported.

To enable multilingual support for a field:
  1. In Drupal, select Structure > Content types from the menu.

The Content types page opens.

  1. In the Operations column, click Manage fields for a content type, for example for Translatable Content.
  1. In the Operations column, click Edit for the field to configure, for example for New Field.
  1. Select the Users may translate all occurrences of this field check box.
  2. Click Save settings.

Important: Repeat the previous steps for each field in each content type that you want to be able to send out for translation.
