Will my page be automatically translated when it goes live ?

Your page will not be automatically translated as the “international site” option is not an automatic translation option as it is a system that allows you to design and embody your site in several languages.

Designing and creating a website in several languages can not only create a translation issue, but also could create issues concerning the availability and accuracy of the information displayed in multiple languages.
 
 Objectifs

You must consider that opening your site to other countries is almost like creating a new one because 80% if the content will need re-doing. The generic text for all components will be automatically translated by our solution (i.e. buttons, system texts etc…) but all the textual content of your site will need to be translated manually.

Furthermore, certain settings are configured by default to be displayed in all languages. Any existing elements must be reviewed to make sure that they're assigned to the english language before creating new elements related to the new langugage.

The Actinic solution allows you to create a site translated into 7 languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Catalan. Our on-line assistance focuses on the translation of a site English to French.
