Uploading versioned media items

This article explains the importance of uploading media items versioned and also provides instructions on how it is done.

Why is it important to upload media items versioned?

If you upload a media item (picture with text in sepcific language or documents) normally, they will exist as a version in all languages. Due to that e.g. a Belgian document could be found on the German website which leads to a bad user experience.

There, please always remember to upload media items versioned so that they only appear in the relevant languages.
