Thanks for your answer @ellativity.

I've already seen the topic and the answers but I still have some questions.

  1. Can I publish a post for a particular language by using the current solution?
  2. Can I create alternative posts for a topic in different languages. For example, I have a post in English, and I want to create its French version. Can I publish each of them under only their parent locales?

Otherwise, I'll try to do that by hardcoding.

Thanks for sharing some of your additional thoughts, Muhammed. I would say that there has been no additional progress made on i18n for Forem, so there is no change to the initial functionality for languages.

A few changes that have occurred on this subject are the ones that Dan made (like ensuring that podcast slugs are pulled correctly from non-Latin script titles). This means that you can write a post in any language you want and the post slug should accurately reflect the post title.

There is currently no way to provide the same post in multiple languages unless you create each post separately and interlink them manually, or write them both in one post with one below the other.

Thank you so much @ellativity. Your answers always help me to understand Forem's basics. I understand that I need to create my own solution to do what I want. Thanks. 😊
