Migration Assessment Scan: Site Template Language

Overview

In SharePoint it is possible to install language packs and create sites leveraging multiple languages. During a migration, additional planning is required to validate sites that are not using a language familiar to the migration team.

Data Migration

Site content will migrate, but validation of the content will require someone that speaks the language the content is in to confirm everything migrated correctly.

Important

Any site that is configured as "No Access" (locked), in SharePoint will be skipped. To see a list of locked site collections see the Locked Sites scan output.

Preparing for Migration

Plan to have appropriate resources available to perform user acceptance testing on the migrated content.

Post Migration

Content experts will need to validate the migrated content.
