I am trying to translate articles/nodes on my site. I installed all required modules. enter image description here

I have a custom node type.

enter image description here

This custom node type has some fields that are translatable and not translatable.

enter image description here

I checked this checkbox enter image description here

I created custom view for the front page that contains nodes of custom type. But when I switch the language translation doesn't work.

Menu translation works. But the view nodes are not translated.

The interesting thing that if I visit my node by a full url path like this


Translation works fine.

I am outputting node properties in my template in the following way

          {{ node.title.value }}
   {{ node.field_description.value|raw }}
    {{ node.field_custom_body.value|raw }}

What can be wrong ?


I have no option Content language selected for page

enter image description here

My view looks like this now

P.S I am using language switcher block to change language and it sets the session variable

You have to configure a filter for the language in the the view:


"Content: Translation language (= Content language selected for page)"

Btw. you have a big security problem in the node template, it is not allowed to apply the raw filter on a field that contains user input. You should use

{{ content.field_custom_body }}

instead to print the field.

  • Thank you so much for your help !! Appreciate it, but I have a problem I have not Content language selected for page, please see my edit Mar 10, 2017 at 13:26
  • You can use the interface language if you not have configured a content language. You can configure both separately, but you don't need to.

  • thanks, I've just set this option but when I change language I get an empty page ( (I've added configuration screen in my question) Mar 10, 2017 at 13:49
  • If you are sure that you have translated content which should pass all filters, then you have a problem with the language detection. I would start with only "URL" detection method enabled.
