With our interface taken care of, now we can configure multilingual support for our content. That is, we need to be able to identify which language a given piece of content is written in and then create translations. So, we already have articles, and we need to add a knowledge base to the site as well. For both of these types of content, we’ll need to identify the language they are written in, as well as provide related, linked translated versions. In this lesson we'll enable the core Book module for our knowledge base, enable multilingual content, and start translating our knowledge base.
