we have a requirement to use new Communication Site template and build a web site, but it should be multilingual.

Since new Communication site look and feel and responsiveness suit to my client requirement and client insisted to use this template.

Now i have challenge how to render the Content in multilingual.

Example : In Hero Tile webpart i want to have Title of each tile will be shown different based on User language. as shown in picture enter image description here

Please help me if its possible.I have worked previously in SPFX webpart with multilingual but i don't want to develop completely new as client want to leverage existing functionality.

Vinit,

There isn't anything available out of the box yet, but there is a "patterns and practices" (PnP) solution that you can find at:

https://github.com/SharePoint/sp-dev-solutions/tree/master/solutions/MultilingualPages

It allows you to create multi-language page equivalents, and automatically redirect users to a page that matches their language.

I hope this helps?

  • Anything custom I can develop. I wanted to know if Microsoft comes with a strategy to provide multilingual in their ootb spfx webpart. Like hero same webpart has a configuration like language, and admin configure two different title for two different language user. And based on user language, hero title displays. This already I have done with custom spfx wanted to know if ootb will have in future. Since not every time business agree for customization – vinit kumar Jun 29 '19 at 9:27
  • It's unlikely there will be anything out of the box in the near future. The SPFx solution above is the current official way to implement multi-lingual in modern sites. – Trevor Seward Feb 14 at 20:26
  • If you are considering developing your own, I would highly recommend you give the PnP solution posted here first. Even though it is not an "official" Microsoft solution, PnP code is written primarily by Microsoft employees and MVP's. – willman 5 hours ago
