Re: translate

When seeing his other post, I had the same thought. So I asked him to explain what he wanted in this thread. He didn't do yet. Maybe he will.

Re: translating a website

Say you have a site myweb.it (in Italian) and you want a new site myweb.de (in German) with the same look and the same content, but translated to German.

Just build that new site. Use the same css and scripts, translate the individual html-pages or items in your CMS to German and store them in the CMS used by German site. If your pictures are in a Content Delivery Network, no change is needed for that; if not, change the links so they point to the original location or copy all pics also.

If you're knowledge of the new language is good enough, you can translate the content yourself. If not, better find a translation agency.
