How to delete duplicate Translation Document Content type in SharePoint 2013 subsite?


  • Content Search web part in SharePoint 2013 sub-site is throwing "unknown error occurred" on launching "Change Query", and on researching on that, found out that duplicate content types might be the cause. With the power shell script, found out that both root site and Sub-site has Translation Document content types. I am not able to find where exactly Translation Document Content type is and how to delete the same. Any inputs/guidance on this would be appreciated.

  • Hi,


    If you want to remove the duplicate content type, you need to find the lists or libraries which use the content type, and remove the using on these lists or libraries, then remove the duplicate content type.
