Bulk Publish Localized and Unlocalized Entry Versions Scenarios

Now, let’s see some real-world scenarios to understand how publishing entries on multiple locales works with your localized and unlocalized content.

In this section, we will look at a few scenarios and learn how this feature works in Contentstack.

Scenario 1: Publishing localized and unlocalized entry versions from the publishing modal of the master language

Consider a scenario where you have the following languages available within your stack: English (United States), French (France), Chinese (China), and Spanish (Spain). English (United States) is set as the master language of the stack, while Spanish (Spain) is set as the fallback language for French (France).

When you open the entry page of the master entry [English (United States)], and click on “Publish”, you can select all the other available languages to which you want to publish the entry. Now, consider the following scenario:

  • The entry version present in French (France) is a localized version
  • The entry version present in Spanish (Spain) is an unlocalized version

Now, if you select the languages English (United States), French (France), and Spanish (Spain) from the publishing modal, the following entry versions will be sent for publishing:

  • The latest entry version present in English (United States)
  • The latest localized entry version present in French (France) [independent copy]
  • The latest entry version present in Spanish (Spain) [with content inherited from the master language].

Scenario 2: Publishing localized entry versions from the publishing modal of other localized entry versions

Consider a scenario where you have the following languages available within your stack: English (United States), Japanese (Japan), and Spanish (Spain). English (United States) is set as the master language of the stack while Spanish (Spain) is set as the fallback language for Japanese (Japan).

When you open the entry page of Spanish (Spain) [fallback language], you can also select the entry version that inherits content from this language, Japanese (Japan), for publishing. Now, consider the following scenario:

  • The entry version present in Spanish (Spain) is a localized version
  • The entry version present in Japanese (Japan) is a localized version

Now, if you select the entries present in Spanish (Spain) and Japanese (Japan) from the publishing modal, the following entry versions will be sent for publishing:

  • The latest entry version present in Spanish (Spain) [with content inherited from the master language]
  • The latest localized entry version present in Japanese (Japan) [independent copy]

Here, since the entry present in Japanese (Japan) is the child entry of the entry present in Spanish (Spain) [parent entry], the localized independent copy of the child entry is also available for publishing.

Scenario 3: Publishing localized entry versions in bulk from the publishing modal of the entries list page

Consider a scenario where you have the following languages available within your stack: English (United States), Japanese (Japan), and Spanish (Spain). English (United States) is set as the master language of the stack while Spanish (Spain) is set as the fallback language for Japanese (Japan).

When you open the entry list page, you can send multiple entries for publishing at once. When you click on “Publish”, you can select all the available languages to which you want to publish the entry, for example, English (United States) and Japanese (Japan). Now, consider the following scenario:

  • The entry version present in Spanish (Spain) is a localized version
  • The entry version present in Japanese (Japan) is a localized version

Now, if you select languages English (United States), Spanish (Spain), and Japanese (Japan) from the publishing modal, the following entry versions will be sent for publishing:

  • The latest entry version present in English (United States)
  • The latest entry version present in Spanish (Spain) [with content inherited from the master language]
  • The latest localized entry version present in Japanese (Japan) [independent copy]

Here, since the entry present in Japanese (Japan) is the child entry of the entry present in Spanish (Spain) [parent entry], the localized independent copy of the child entry is also available for publishing.
