Multi-language Templating

This page shows you how to access the language code and alternate language versions of a document.

Get the document language code

Here is how to access the language code of a document queried from your repository. This might give "en-us" (American english), for example.


Get the alternate language versions

Next we will access the information about a document's alternate language versions. You can loop through the alternate_languages array and access the id, uid, type, and language code of each as shown below.

document.alternate_languages.each do |lang, doc|
    id =
    uid = doc.uid
    type = doc.type
    doc_lang = lang

Get a specific language version

If you need to get a specific alternate language version, pass the language code of the desired language into the alternate_languages array as shown below.

french_version = @document.alternate_languages["fr-fr"]
id =
uid = french_version.uid
type = french_version.type
lang = french_version.lang
