Occasionally, you may encounter content that has been created in a language other than the default language (often English). In order to correct this, you must first create the content in the Site's default language, then create a "Langauge version" based on the default language content.
The example below demonstrates these steps if the default language for a Site was English, and a piece of content only existed in a German translation.
- Create English content to correspond with the German translation
