The buttons may have three different colors according to their state:

  • Black: Language of the currently displayed resource.
  • Green: Language for which a translated resource is defined.
  • Light Gray: Language for which no translation has been created or defined yet.

By clicking on the (green) language buttons you can easily switch between the different language versions of your resources.

If there are no translations defined for certain language (gray button), mousover the language's button: a layer appears where you can tell Babel to create a translation of the current resource or you can set the translation link to an existing resource manually by entering the ID of the translated resource.

When clicking on "Create Translation" Babel will create a new resource in the language's context and copy all the content of the current resource to the newly created resource. You now can translated all the content and TVs and publish the translated resource.

If you'd like to remove a translation link, just mouseover the (green) language button: a layer appears where you can click on "Unlink translation" button to remove the translation link to this language.
