Correctly Nest Entities and Build Healthy Multilingual Relationships

As component-based #design principles evolve, the actual implementation in #Drupal can be performed in many ways. Most, if not all, component-based site building approaches rely on Entity Relationships. Adding multilingual support that is Correct and Predictable can be a challenge to configure. In this session, we'll surface best practices of #Multilingual configuration with entity relationships.

Oh, but how many types of entity relationships are there? It shouldn't be that hard, right? Paragraphs, Layout Builder, referenced nodes, custom entities, media entities, taxonomy terms. The list goes on.

And did you want to nest those entities? How many blocks can include other blocks that include Paragraphs that include taxonomy terms and Media Entities? Hmm... does this sound familiar? Perhaps a highly configurable component?

And how many permutations of "multilingual" can there be? Well, there is #translation vs. #localization. Each requiring Drupal's CMS and page display to be configured for Correct and Predictable Display. Even for those complex nested entities.

We'll cover:
Common multilingual use-cases and configuration approach with nesting
Considerations with leading component-based site-building architectures
Tools that exist in the community, and those that may need to be developed!
