List migrations in WSS3.0 SP2 from English language to French language RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    In WSS 3.0 SP2, I created a site in English language.

    This site contains near about 8 to 10 lists and 3 webparts associated with that 8 lists.

    I also created a blank French site in French language.

    Can any one tell me that how I would get all those lists and webparts from English site to French site?

    Thanks & Regards

  • Hi Shrikant,

    You can use codeplex content deployment tool to transfer lists from English to French Site

    Here is the link where you can download the tool


    And to export Web Parts you can directly choose Export option when you click Modify web part option

    One more option for list / libraries

    Save list / Lib as a template with content and download it on your local machine

    Upload it on destination site in List Templates and create another List / Lib from that template

    Hope this helps

    First of all thanks for your help. 

    This tool is same behave like, if we tried with SP Deigner. 

    I tried this but this solution is not give me perfect result.I tried to export from source(English) site and import into destination(French) site, but as I found that the importing is only possible for same languages(Eng-Eng) or (Frn-Frn) etc...

    Any ways.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I suggest that you should plan to deploy multilingual site:
    In additional, you also can change the language of an existing SharePoint site:
    That would not migrate list.

    I hope it can help you a little.
    Best regards,
    David Hu
