Internationalization input

Cleaner UI for creating translatable documents as the translation is managed across multiple fields.

Intl plugin for Sanity

npm version

sanity-plugin-intl-input will soon be deprecated in favour of an updated version, officially released by Sanity. This is for future compatibility with Sanity Studio and to ensure dedicated maintenance of the plugin. We anticipate no breaking changes to document-level features, however the new official plugin will not support field-level internationalisation.

Field-level internationalisation is best done using the guidance in the official Documentation, combined with the @sanity/language-filter plugin to improve the UI. This method is different from the existing implementation and will require you to update your configuration and schema. You can find a migration guide in the documentation.

If you have any questions please ask them in the Sanity Slack community.

Default solution

When you want to create translations in Sanity they suggest following approach.
This definitely works, but makes the UI very clunky as you get more fields that require translations.

Default Solution

With intl-plugin

With the intl plugin you will get a cleaner UI for creating translatable documents as the translation is managed across multiple fields and it is even possible to manage document wide translations.
