Hi Ricardo,

But what I see as a real mistake is this:

I think the content on the different locales must be the same whenever
possible, and separate the wiki on different language subdomains defeat the
idea of "content coherence": IMO, the way in which TDF wiki is set up now is
the only possibility for a healthy multilingual project because it easy the
"interaction" between languages.
Just my 2¢

I agree and disagree at the same time.

We have basically two things to handle:

   1. Content with global focus. Pages are set up in English and are
translated to different languages. For these pages multilingual
"content coherence" is important.

   2. Content with local focus. Pages are written in their local
language only and won´t be translated.

We do have some strong, independant working local communities with
their own and very special activities that do not concern other NL
groups or the rest of the world. For these local communities each, a
separate wiki could be helpful.

Till now, we tried to address both aspects by two concepts for the
multilingual wiki in parallel:

We do have:
 ... and so on
This is meant to keep multilingual content coherence.

as well as:
 ... and so on
This is meant to allow local communities to create their very own
pages in the wiki. As far as I understand, these pages are
candidates for moving to a separate subdomain for each language.

By the way: We do have pretty much the same dual concept with
Silverstripe CMS for the website. We do have a international main
site. In the main site pages are translated to the various
languages. At the same time we do have subsites in subdomains for
each language.
