Localize a Release

We recommend using released content for localization. The localized content is associated with a given release and does not show up for the source map.
  • Release a map or a topic. See Create a Release.
    Remember: You must use DITA maps and not standalone DITA topics to localize content.
In the Releases pane, do the following:
  1. Hover over a release and click Localize.
