Article contains following fields: Title, Body, Author-name, Language

Author has following fields: Name, Year, Info

You need Entity Reference, In your Article content type, create the author field as an entity reference field and refer it to the Author content type. After that you can create a view and add a relationship of Entity Reference and you will get the related fields. For further read, refer here

  • Add the referenced entity field and under Formatter select Label and then check Link label to the referenced entity. Thats it you will get the link.
