OpenCms supports multi-lingual contents and stores language specific values for each content element. For textual values, it is intended in most cases that the values differ for each language.
In some situations, though, it is desirable that content element values are the same for every language. For example, you might use the same image or the same date for each language of an event content.
To keep values identical—independent of the language—one can configure that an element's values should be synchronized. This means, if you change the value for one language in the editor, it is changed for all languages.
