Building a page with language-specific blocks

When constructing a multi-language website, your blocks can appear in the language which you choose for a specific page. Here's how to create a non-English language page that will be pre-populated with the content in the language that you specify.

Creating a page from scratch

  1. Create a new page. Go to the main menu and click Pages…

  1. Click Submit and then Publish to make the changes live. After the page has been published, return to the Sitebuilder.

  2. Click on the round Add a block button to access the Block Library. All blocks in the Block Library will have the demo content in the language you have specified:

Continue building your page using blocks in your target language.

Important: When you make your site multilingual, all content in the new blocks that you add to language-specific pages will be in that language.
