The chosen language copy will be set as default, you can later change it in the Content variant block.
Click Create variants to link your multilingual content. Adobe Campaign Standard will then automatically link the other language copies to this content. The created variants will have the same label and code language as the ones chosen in Adobe Experience Manager.
