Localization of MediaData


Please implement a way to localize properties on MediaData objects. The documentation seems to support it at the time of this writing ( but apparently this is incorrect and the suggested way to solve this is to do the workaround presented here:
Would be nice to have this feature built into the product, or at least (until fixed :-)) clearly stated somewhere that this is not possible.
Best regards

Thanks for bringing this up, I'm glad you found the workaround for now. Would you mainly want to translate the metadata related to a media item? Or do you also see a need to store language specific file variations?

I'm mainly interested in translating the properties. Haven't yet needed to have a language version of the file itself.

Ok, thanks!

Same goes for me, so far we've only had the wish to translate the metadata related to the media item.

Physical file per language (with fallback to master) would be preferred as well... We have been asked to provide different images (usually for background color) for different cultures.

+1 for what Valdis wrote. We have had that request in projects.

+1 primarily for localizing the properties.

Grzegorz does it nicely here: , but additional code is required for migrating existing images from "Invariant" culture to an enabled master language.

Any news here?
