LifeDesks now support the tagging of text and image descriptions with language information. Look for the Language drop-down menu in the page and image editing forms.
By default, a newly created LifeDesk site only has English as an enabled language. However, additional languages may be installed and enabled by visiting the Administration section as a site owner or administrator. Under the heading "Site Configuration" is a link called "Languages", which upon clicking, will permit the activation of any or all desired languages that are supported for data entry.
Your LifeDesk can host content in different languages for the same taxon, but you need to create a separate taxon page template for each language. For example, if you have a description of Bufo bufo in both English and French, you would create two separate Bufo bufo page templates (Create Content: Create Taxon Page) to accommodate content in each of the languages. Both on your LifeDesk and on EOL the content from the different taxon page templates will be displayed side by side.
Similarly, if you want to have English and French image descriptions, you need to upload the same image twice (Create Content: Create Image), so you can have one version with an English description and one with a French description.
Note that for the time being, heading and chapter titles will remain in English. Support for titles in other languages will be added later, and your content will then automatically be associated with a title in the relevant language. So it's best not to create new language specific titles for different language content. If you create language specific custom titles, you'll have to manually move your content to the default chapter once the automatic title translations become available.
I you have already created text or image descriptions in other languages on your LifeDesk, you can now tag this content with the relevant language.
In the case of images, simply locate the image, either in the gallery, on a taxon page, or through the Content Management interface (Administration: Content management: Manage Content). Click on the Edit link of the image you want to update, select the language from the Language drop-down menu, and save the new image data.
In the case of taxon pages, find the page in the Taxon Pages list or through the Content Management interface (Administration: Content management: Manage Content). View the page and click on the Edit link associated with any of the chapters, select the language from the Language drop-down menu, and save the new page data. Note that this language selection will apply to all the chapters on a given pages, so if you have chapters in different languages, you should move these to separate taxon pages for the same taxon. For example, if you have a page for Bufo bufo with chapters in both French and English, create a new taxon page for Bufo bufo (Create Content: Create Taxon Page), select French from the Language drop-down menu, and then paste the French language content from your original Bufo bufo page into appropriate chapters.
