Add a Language

If you have the required permissions, you can add languages to your stack to create and publish entries in multiple languages.

To add a language, log in to your Contentstack account, and perform the following steps:

  1. Go to your stack, navigate to the “Settings” gear icon at the top, and select Languages. You will see the default master language along with other added language(s).

    Note: Apart from the master language, you can add/remove the other languages.

  2. Click on the + New Language button located at the top-right corner of the page. This opens the Add Language box that lets you select and add language(s).
  3. In the Select Language menu, select the required language from the list of available languages. The selected language’s code will appear.
  4. In the Select Fallback Language menu, select the fallback language for the newly added language.
  5. Click on Add.

After adding the language in the stack, the content manager can add an entry in the specified language or create localized entries.

Note: The Content Manager can view or create content in multiple languages only for the languages that are added to the stack by the Admin/Developer.
