Group/Editor permission for languages


I have an issue with a large globalized website with alot of languages in EPiServer.

At the moment we have used different nodes for each language, with each spoken language for that country. With this, we have assigned access rights to the node-treew using Editors (e.g NL has EditorsNL). Several of the nodes has Spoken languages as well. For example, the Netherlands has nl-BE and nl-DE.

Example structure: /NL/asd/BE/ /NL/asd/DE/

This causes alot of confusions and misses when the translation begins.

I need one tree structure with the languages and set editor access rights depending on what group or editor they are in. Anyone have any tips on what class to use or point me in some direction where to start?

If I have understod you correctly your propblem is that EPiServer can only set access for a page. And that page can be in many languages. You therefore need to add to episerver a check for edit rights to a spesific languages.

you could do:

make logical groups like  Allow_nl-BE,Allow_nl-DL

assign these groups to the users that should be allowed to edit that language

Add DataFactory.Instance.SavingPage+=DontAllowSaving;

private static void DontAllowSaving(object sender, PageEventArgs e)
    if (HttpContext.Current != null && EPiServer.Security.PrincipalInfo.Current != null)
        if (
         !EPiServer.Security.PrincipalInfo.Current.RoleList.Contains("Allow_" + e.Page.LanguageID)
            e.CancelAction = true;
            e.CancelReason = "You don't have rights to save this languages";
