To make it easily identifiable, a globe symbol appears along with the article status under the categories on the left tree view. In fact, this is not just limited to articles; even some elements and options on the side menu would have the globe symbol next to them indicating Localization available.

In project versions containing multiple languages, you can find the new article translation status indicator found above the text formatting toolbar in both markdown and HTML editors.

Note

You wouldn’t find the translation status indicator in the default language articles.
