Automatically Populating Page or Block Type Properties for a Language Branch in EPiServer 7

on April 19, 2013 in Episerver, Episerver CMS, Optimizely, Localization, Development with

The creation and editing of content for multiple language sites in EPiServer 7 has recently become a topic of conversation in some of our projects. We occasionally receive feedback from our clients who are looking for ways to reduce the amount of time it takes to enter content, while also being consistent with the page and block layout.

One big change with the new Edit Mode in EPiServer 7, which was available in EPiServer 6 (and technically is still available in the old Edit Mode), is that feature to compare the language branches for a page side-by-side has been removed. This was useful for editors who need to keep the content for pages consistent between each language branch, as it allowed them to easily compare the different language branches.

So to help this, we created a property attribute called [AutoPopulateLanguageBranch]. Whenever a editor translates a page or block, this copies the values from the master language branch to the new language branch for the decorated page or block type properties. This keeps the content consistent between the language branches, which, at the same time, helps speed up the process of entering content.
