Building the base locale site | CTC for HCL Digital Experience

The Multilingual Solution is built around the concept of a base locale where content is created first, before being copied and translated or otherwise prepared for other locales.

About this task

The first step to creating a multilingual site is to create a "skeleton" site in your base locale:


  1. If your base locale is English, the content in the CTC Content library will not need to be modified. For any other base locale language, translate the content first.
  2. Create a site by using the Content Template Catalog page templates.
  3. Add portlets for the CTC palette, or custom portlets.


You now have a site with which to proceed with the rest of the process.
