Content localization


Localization is supported as a core feature in Hygraph. It allows a single piece of content to hold many configured locales.

#What you can do

In your project settings you can define how many locales you want to support, choosing from a range of common defaults to providing custom locales as well.

Depending on the content model and the number of locales activated in the project several locales can be available.
