Adding the Online Language Menu Item

Once the previous steps have been completed, the Content Management application Articles|Text page will contain a language tab for each of the configured languages and AudienceView Online will have a splash page that prompts users to select their preferred language. A new language column is also added to the General Configuration application Lists|Entries page, although the new column is not automatically populated. For more information, refer to Populating Multi-Language List Entries.
