Let's say we navigate to http://example.org/ch/de/node/1 (with pathauto enabled /ch/de/hallo-welt)

Now I want to specify somewhere the country Switzerland (ch) and set the available languages to de (for German), fr (for French), it (for Italian), rm (for Rhaeto-Romanic)

So when I navigate to that link above, there should be a language switcher that shows me all translations for that country.

But now I have other countries specified. For example Canada (ca) with the languages en and fr but en should not be visible on node/1 And of course now I have a node at /ca/en/hello-world with a translation in fr. Now the other languages should not be visible on that node.

How can I do that with modules?

I would suggest you look at This helps you translate whatever you need to have translated


I guess you here at the moment trying figure things out The default language is always enabled as a detection method and that will give you a fallback language if none of the other language detection methods are available.

(if your using Entity Translation) You will have to enable the translation of nodes or entities that would be translatable at admin/config/regional/entity_translation.

After that you should :

Be able to enable "Multilingual support: Enabled, with content translation" on the content type edit form under "Publishing options". For example, for a content type named "example", this would be at admin/structure/types/manage/example/edit in the "publishing options" fieldset.

  • Thanks, but I'm not sure if that is the answer of my question. The question was not how to translate the site but to have some sort of country specific sites. The translation is on top of that. So for example there should be de_de for Germany_German or ch_de for Switzerland_German and so on.
