Understanding the Send Dependent Items Check Box

The Send Dependent Items check box is displayed in:

  • the Choose Items page of the Bulk Translation wizard
  • the Automatic Item Export for Translation dialog box

The following diagram and scenarios illustrate which data sources the Send Dependent Items check box sends to translation by default.

Note: The behavior of the Send Dependent Items check box is configurable. For detailed configuration instructions, refer to the Lionbridge Connector for Sitecore Installation and Configuration Guide.

Scenario 1

When sending the single item /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 1 for translation:

  • /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 1 is included as the item
  • /sitecore/content/home/partials/about us is included as the dependent item
  • /sitecore/content/home/components/component 2 is included as the dependent item of the dependent item

Children of about us and component 2are not included, because these are not dependent items of dependent items: rather, they are children of dependent items.

Scenario 2

When sending the single item /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 2 for translation:

  • /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 2 is included as the item
  • /sitecore/content/home/components/component 2 is included as the dependent item

Children of component 2are not included, because these are not dependent items of dependent items: rather, they are children of dependent items.

Scenario 3

When sending the branch /sitecore/content/home/pages for translation:

  • /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 1 is included as the item
  • /sitecore/content/home/partials/about us is included as the dependent item
  • /sitecore/content/home/components/component 2 is included as the dependent item of the dependent item
  • /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 2 is included as the item
  • /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 3 is included as the item
  • /sitecore/content/home/pages/page 4 is included as the item

Children of component 2are not included, because the branch of /sitecore/content/home/pages is sent for translation: the branch of component 2 is not sent for translation.
