Using culture specific properties in ImageData


Hi everyone

Sorry I'm new to Episerver and I'm trying to understand why I can't save a property for every language of my media file.

The object definition is the following:

public class ImageFile : ImageData
        public virtual string Description { get; set; }

        public virtual string Alt { get; set; }

        public virtual string Copyright { get; set; }


And entering the CMS admin, in properties of my image, I can write into textboxes called "Copyright / alt / description"

My problem is that I can't save a string for each language as it seems I don't have a version for each language: just an unique version of that file.

Can anyone help me to understand where I'm wrong?

Hello Claudio 

By default properties of MediaData items cannot be translated. However someone has written a blog on how this can be done:
