... driving me nuts ...


on the German project we had the discussion about using Translation Tabs 
at all.

Problems we encountered:

- if using Translation Tab, you get a translated page inside of the 
original domain

- if including this translated page (as SubsiteVirtualPage) into your 
national domain, you have 2 instances of the same page. Relative links 
do not work anymore from the included page. So you have to always use 
absolute links in such pages, which brings the problem that they are 
not updated automatically by the CMS. 

- the original page tree navigation entries might follow a different 
logic than your national, but you cannot change navi entries in the 
translated page (only in the included). So you end up with two 
different Navigation structures in both instances. 

As the latter was a usability NOGO, we ended up in setting up all pages 
in our own national space. Thereby we lose the translation hints on 
every single page. 

As translated pages and national pages have a n:m relation, the only 
possibility (I don't know if this can be implemented) I see is to 
set up translation pages as Redirects to corresponding national pages 
and vice versa, but there seems to be no support for this in the CMS, so 
doing all this manually is not manageable.

So we ended up with a completely national page tree. A prominent link to 
translations might be a good idea, though (in www there is a 1st level 
navi entry pointing to "International Sites").
