While lazily browsing through EPiServer’s Nuget feed I stumbled upon this little fella: EPiServer.Labs.LanguageManager
Searching the Internets for any information regarding this package gave nothing, so I installed it to find out. Well, it allows you to create a new language version of a page or block by duplicating the content of another language. Sweeeet!
Add the following Nuget package to your project:
PM> Install-Package EPiServer.Labs.LanguageManager
Or choose an older version in case you are not using the latest EPiServer version.
In EPiServer choose to add a new gadget to the page or block pane. Select “Languages” and you are good to go.
Select a page or block.
In the “Translation” gadget click on the context menu icon of the language you want to create. Select “Duplicate [language] content”. Done!
