I have enabled entity translation and multi-language feature to an existing Drupal site. Currently all nodes in the site are set as Language Neutral, so the translation tab wont appear. If I edit a node and manually change the language to English the translation tab will appear and I can add the translated content for other languages.
I've tried the VBO - Modify entity values operator method mentioned at How can I set the language of nodes in bulk to existing content when making a site multilingual? but after changing the language from language neutral to English via VBO, the body content is not displaying when I edit the node later. The body content will appear if I change the value back to language neutral. It looks like the language of the field body is not change with the view bulk operations.
Is there any way I can can do a bulk operation and change the language of the nodes in bulk so that the nodes are translatable?
