Possible to create translation with same page name?

posts: 1


I'm creating a multilingual wiki with several different languages, whereby most of the page names are proper nouns, so untranslatable. Annoyingly, Tiki won't let me create a new page with the same name in another language. Is there any way around this?

I've been googling and peaking through the documentation + Smarties for quite some time without any luck, so any help would be greatly appreciated!

I believe all page names must be unique.

If you're not going to translate the page name, you might consider simply appending the two-letter abbreviation to the end of the page name:

  • PAGE_NAME (Default)
  • PAGE_NAME, es (for Spanish)
  • PAGE_NAME, ja (for Japanese)
  • etc.

... and you can strip out the appendage for display, of course, so that

  • PAGE_NAME, es

displays as


- there's a setting in the Wiki admin to do this where you can choose the character that separates the part of the page name to be stripped out.

Maybe using Namespaces, you could do:
