Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OJS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Multilanguage Fields

I would like to know wich fields are multilanguage. Becasuse we are working with journals in three different languages. I still don't know wich fields are the same for all the languages, and wich ones can be done in a custom way for each language.

Our goal is to complete the journal description in all the languages, without (or avoiding) having unnecesary main language info in the other languages. (ie. we add some fields with info in three language, because the field is the same for all languages)

Hi hekutoru2kx,

The easiest thing to do is to fill out all fields in your primary language first, and then switch to your secondary and tertiary languages. You will see that all multilingual fields that had previously been filled in are now blank.
