Have you found any solution to this major annoyance?
Our client wishes to have just a single back-end language in a site with 6 languages in the front-end. One of the languages is Russian! Another is Chinese! It's quite funny watching the editors gaping at the screen and scratching their heads.
I started complaining about this in August 2011
2) There is a PITS issue. Unfortunately all PITS Links are BROKEN
3) Lubomir thought it was not a feature and hoped it would be fixed in 4.3 - we are heading for 7.0
4) Georgi - We definitely include in 44.SP1 (LOL)
Unless you get 300 votes on the feedback forum or someone on the inside of Telerik who can put some pressure on this.
THIS WILL NOT CHANGE
Start looking for clients with only one backend language. Sad to say.
I just wished that Telerik would open an office in Aman and one in Peking and Headquarter would have to administrate the pages in these two languages.
Even worse is that if you import a german language pack because you want some controls to be localized settings turns to german as well.
This is simply borked and in my opinion no one at Telerik wants to touch it.
So as for me. I gave up hope and simply live with it and enjoy other new and improved features of the best CMS on the market.
But that does not mean I am happy with this.
Thanks for responding.
I, too, am afraid this is not going to change anytime soon. Mainly because all localized email notifications and error messages are considered by Sitefinity as back-end strings. So to separate these system-inherent strings from back-end labels would require some thought (guess what, it's not a problem in Joomla).
The best CMS on the market? You probably mean Sitefinity 3.7, which was not as hermetically closed as the latest versions...
No I am talking about 6.x and future versions.
Every release bring new great features I really do appreciate. But yes I am still waiting for some desperately. But good things come to those who wait.
You can find this bug in our brand new feedback portal .... ... and in any multilingual version up to 6.3 :-)
Just kidding. Two likes. Thats not encouraging :-(
PS: the portal is so slow that I first thought paging is broken there too: www.marktold.com/screencast/sf_feedback_paging.swf
