Adding languages to your account

Before you can create multi-language stories in StoryChief, you'll need to first add languages to your account. To do this, follow the instructions below:

Step 1. In the right top corner, click on your user profile and select Account in the dropdown menu.

Step 2. Select Languages under Stories.

Step 3. Click on the Add new button

Select a language from the predefined list. 

If you have an external website with multiple languages make sure to match the language codes. For instance, for a Wordpress website with the language code nl-BE you will need to fill in nl-BE in the code field.

Translating stories

Now that we have multiple languages we can translate our story.
In the Stories overview page, a new Translate option will be available. Click on it and choose the language you want to use.

Clicking on Translate will duplicate the chosen story, link it the original version, and forward you to the editor where you can begin to translate it. You can change the set language of the story by going to the Summary tab.
