    Hello Jaun,

    It is easy to setup dimension and dimensionset for existing site. I am providing you summarized version of what needs to be done below. Let's consider you need 2 languages for your site: en and fr. Considering that all your content is already present in English language but no dimension is assigned to any assets, then do the following:

    1. Create "en" & "fr" dimensions & 1 dimensionset (name it which is most sensible for e.g. sitename + "_DimSet"). Include both languages/dimensions within this Dimension and assign this "en" all the assets whichever is English content. How to? Create utility which should set dimensions for all the English assets using Asset API or WCS tags
    2. Once assets are updated with "en" dimension, you can now translate the asset in "fr". One thing you should note is that content is not translated, it just creates a link with "en" language asset and that's it. You will have manually enter "fr" content.
    3. Check FirstSiteII which would help you in understanding how to write implementation of displaying language content

    It will take a while to grasp the idea but it is not that hard once you know what to do. Let me know if you have anymore questions.
