    You'd use the LocalisationService and call the CreateDictionaryItemWithIdentity() method to programmatically create a dictionary item.

    Thank you for the answer!! I see that there must be a parentId in the CreateDictionaryItemWithIdentity method, where can I get this?

    Hi! So the signature to the CreateDictionaryItemWithIdentity method looks like this:

    CreateDictionaryItemWithIdentity(string key, Guid? parentId, string defaultValue = null)

    So I believe that the parentId can be null if you want to create the dictionary item within the root of the dictionary area. However, if you want to nest the item under an existing dictionary item, then you'd need to pass the parent ID as a GUID.

    You can get the IDs of the root items by calling LocalizationService.GetRootDictionaryItems() which returns all the root items. Each item will have a property called Key which is the GUID you need to pass as the parent to create a child item.
