Is it OK to make one category for All Languages

Post by mshami85 » Sun Aug 25, 2019 6:53 am

suppose a site with two languages (AR, EN), every time i make article; i should choose an article category (which is belong to one language!), then i choose an article language

now if i create one category tree related to language (ALL), then creating an article is more flexible by choosing a category (that support all languages) and choosing an article language.
I've tried this method, it works. but i am aware from future working if this will affect the site !!!

is it OK? or whats wrong in this method ??

Category names will be in one language only.

This can have unwanted consequences and be confusing depending on the site menu items.

Issues may happen when there are specific menu items (or modules based on categories) displaying that category and also in the breadcrumbs links.
