    Using Multi-Lingual Metadata

    In this topic you will learn how to use multi-lingual video metadata in a Portal Experience.

    The multi-lingual metadata feature allows you to enter video metadata in multiple languages and then configure a Portal Experience to display the video metadata in the same language that the experience is configured for.

    Configuring the account languages

    Before you can add multi-lingual metadata to your videos, you must configure a primary language and one or more additional languages as part of the account settings. For information on how to do this, see Configuring Language Settings.

    When configuring additional languages, many languages have multiple dialects to choose from. Gallery currently supports these languages and ISO codes.

    Language ISO Code
    English (US) en-us
    German de-de
    Spanish es-es
    French fr-fr
    Japanese ja-jp
    Korean ko-kr
    Russian ru-ru
    Simplified Chinese zh-cn
    Traditional Chinese zh-tw

    Adding multi-lingual metadata

    2. Click the video title link to open the video properties page.

    For more information, see Working with Multi-Lingual Metadata.

    2. Click on an experience title to open the Gallery Site Editor.
    3. In the left navigation, click OVERVIEW.

    1. Open the Gallery module.
    2. Click on an experience title to open the Gallery Site Editor.
    3. In the left navigation, click SITE FEATURES > Language.
    4. Select the Use metadata's language as default option.
