Hi Tom and everyone, we used Apostrophe because of it’s great user experience on a smaller, single language, site late last year.
We would love to use it on a bigger project that requires a multi-language setup. I searched the old Google Groups did not get a definite answer whether that would be possible or not.
Could you tell us if it is possible to create multilanguage sites with Apostrophe or if it would be feasible for us to create that functionality for it and open source our solution?
One approach, of course, is just to have “subdirectories” of the site,
separately built out for each language, taking advantage of shared
media that doesn’t have a textual element but otherwise independent.
That can be done already, but you’ve indicated you don’t want to go
Another approach is for each page to have versions in various
languages. This is not something that has been built so far.
In Apostrophe 1.5, every page, blog post, event, etc. could be
translated into multiple languages, although the URLs were always in
the default language. Some folks told us they didn’t actually like
this when it comes to blog posts and events, although they found it
useful with regard to pages.
