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.

With OJS, you can upload multiple galley files for final publication. This can certainly be several translated versions of an article. You can indicate what language each version is in the file label field when uploading. However, I don't believe there is a way to set the "language" field for the metadata unless that language is enabled in some way on the journal.

When enabling languages, you can choose to have the languages available in the User Interface, Submissions, or Forms. If you only enabled the languages for Forms, you should be able to select that language for the file's descriptive metadata but not have the language available for the interface.

All best,
