Need an advise in planning a specific multilingual setup
Hello all good and knowledgeable people!
I need an advise in planning a specific multilingual setup for a portal. See what you can propose, please!
I am quite new to plone, but learning by doing a project.
I started volunteering on creating a site for a non-profit and need to design a
multilingual, interactive and publishing web portal.
If talking about internationalization ,LinguaPlone e.t.c., - What would be the best strategy for a portal development plan if:
I want to make sure that :
A few (at this time only!) writers who are either German ,Russian, Hebrew or English speakers (at this time only!) , could contribute their writings to the portal in THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE and those writings to become immediately available (after approval) - in the other three primary languages for now (and may be more later), with the option of manually fine- tuning the translation .
I might be wrong but it seems to me that it's a problem for LinguaPlone since the source is going to be multilingual, so using a canonical site for the translations in this case seems to me limited to only one editor language for all the translations. Isn't it?
Or maybe to make a separate ( a canonical) site in every language and when someone publishes his article in that site of his language, that article ((in addition to being translated to let's say to some other languages than these four )) will be translated and will be put somehow into an existing canonical - original sites of the other three languages at the right mirrored place.
But how to accomplish that kind of interoperability? It doesn't look to me that using LiguaPlone or other addons would be enough?? Or it seems to me that plain separate sites would be the only way to create that kind of multilingual editing ability for the portal?.
And I want to link a separate domain to each language site.
If that kind of ability doesn't exist or requires some serious programming work then I think it would be an awesome thing to add it to Plone CMS!
