Flexible Site Structure
With Kentico, every language version can have its own site structure completely independent from other versions.
Kentico shows you which pages have not been translated yet or are not up to date with the default language version.
Fallback to the Default Language
If a page is not translated into the required language, the website can optionally display the default language version.
Smart Language Selection
When a new visitor comes to the website, the appropriate content culture can be automatically displayed:
- based on the domain name (e.g. mycompany.fr would default to the French version)
- based on the browser's language settings
UNICODE and Eastern Languages
All content is stored in UNICODE and displayed in UTF-8 or UTF-16 encoding, ensuring compatibility with any language, including Russian, Chinese, Hebrew or Spanish.
Date and Time Format
Kentico can be configured for any calendar and numerical format.
UI Localized into Many Languages
The Kentico user interface is available in many languages, including the ones listed below. Moreover, you can easily create your own translation or change the wording to better fit your terminology.
Language-Specific Workflow Process
You can define a workflow process with different people for every language. So, if you have a German office that manages the German version of your website, they can use a different workflow than your U.S. office does.
You can also choose users authorized to edit a particular language version.
Automatic Time Conversion for Global Websites
Kentico allows users to choose their time zone and have the website display the date and time values in their local time zone. For example, if they are in London and the web server is in New York, they will see date and time values in the local London time instead of the U.S. server time.
This feature is supported in both the administration interface and on the live site (e.g., in the Forums module).
