I am struggling with the i18n configuration of my site and the display of the available translated content 'languages' link displayed next/under the content.

Under which condition will this link be displayed for translated content?

  1. The content type is translated-enabled
  2. The language field must be displayed/visible in the content type configuration
  3. There must be more than one language made available
  4. The content must be translated
  5. ...?

I guess all the above apply, but is there more?

The reason I am asking this is because I believe I have configured my site properly, but I still don't see that link to jump between translated content. I am looking for a check list to find my error(s) or misunderstanding. Thanks.

I'm guessing this is your other question!

I'm not exactly sure but I just did this from scratch on my Drupal test site and found it to work.

  1. Modules - The only module I have enabled is Multilingual content
  2. Content Type - Edit - Publishing options - Enabled, with translation
  3. Content Type - Edit - Multilingual settings - Nothing selected except 'Normal'
  4. Regional and language - Languages - Multiple languages enabled
  5. Regional and language - Multilingual settings - Node Options - Hide content translation links is not checked

i18n can definitely be uncooperative...

  • Problem solved, not really sure why. I believe it has to do with modification of content instance and change of 'Require language (Do not allow Language Neutral)' configuration. Commented Mar 13, 2012 at 20:27
  • This doesn't surprise me. I've had i18n start working after disabling and re-enabling translation. Commented Mar 14, 2012 at 1:17
