Localization and user levels

Is it possible to have a user have only access to one language? Or have only access to change one language?

For example, you do your site in English, and then you hire an external resource to do the translation. It would be nice to be able to enable the pages for translation and just have them only have access to change the content for that language.

Where can I find details/tutorials/etc. on localization?

Yes, you can limit the language a user may edit - see http://users.composite.net/C1/Superuser/Security/UserGlobalPermissions.aspx

You can find a guide on content localization here: http://users.composite.net/C1/Guides/User-Guide.aspx/Multiple-languages

Thanks, that's perfect! I keep finding new parts to that site... it's much bigger than it seems when you're initially looking at it.

I'm really liking that statement. We try to create a flexible system, increasingly simplified via a few layers of abstractions, that end users at the top find it simple to operate and developers find enjoyable to extend and customize. Things may appear a little simple at a first glance, but that is by design ;-)

It's a good thing to reach out for! I was actually talking about the C1 website, but I suppose the principles are more or less the same! Good job all around.

 

Now, if only there were training sessions or an active user group in Seattle or Vancouver, I could convince my boss that I needed to go to a training seminar to quickly get up to speed!
