Umbraco 8 back-office has no Dictionary node

In one of my new Umbraco 8 sites, I needed to create a dictionary to store texts, rather than hard-coding strings in C# code.

However, I could not find the Dictionary node in Content, where I would have expected it. (and others as well)

The solution is to login as administrator, and assign the user access to the group Translators, or to enable the section Translators for the group.

It seems that an administrator does not have access to the translation functionality by default.

Then, create Languages under the Content tab, and add dictionary items with their respective text values under Translation.

See the Umbraco forum for illustrations.
