    Hi @Echo Du_MSFT Thanks for your reply.

    I already activated this feature and getting "Enable pages and news to be translated into multiple languages"
    option.
    I wanted to set it on( slide the toggle to On) by pnp code and add alternative language.
    Was able to do it, we need to activate one more feature "MultilingualPages"

    enable MultilingualPages feature

    Enable-PnPFeature -Identity 24611c05-ee19-45da-955f-6602264abaf8

    $Web = Get-PnPWeb -Includes RegionalSettings.InstalledLanguages
    $Web.RegionalSettings.InstalledLanguages
    $Web.IsMultilingual = $true
    $Web.AddSupportedUILanguage(1036)
    $Web.Update()
    Invoke-PnPQuery

    Hello @BG Rachana Sg GscCenBscDso ,

    If you want to enable multilingual feature support on a Team site you can do so by activating a hidden feature called SitePagePublishing using PnP PowerShell as a site owner.

    Connect-PnPOnline https://contoso.sharepoint.com/sites/mysite  
    Enable-PnPFeature -Identity f39dad74-ea79-46ef-9ef7-fe2370754f6f
