Multilingual Site Development

Multilingual project challenges overview.

Quintagroup has recently faced the task of developing multilingual site. It was the case with Offshore Company. Initially it was created in English, but now out task was to make it multilingual: English-Russian. To fulfil this task we used LinguaPlone product, the tool that help to manage and maintain multilingual content. It was done quite successfully, but still some problem emerged.

Multilingual site can be organized in different ways, what we chose is:
English version was put into the root of the site - http://www.offshorecompany.com/
then we create a folder 'ru' - a Russian version of the site - http://www.offshorecompany.com/ru
In 'ru' folder the content was translated but the shortnames remained the same as in English version.

The difficulties that appeared were:

  • when a root Folder was translated with LinguaPlone, the translated version was automatically put into the root. What we had to do was to cut the translated version and to paste it into 'Ru' folder. Than the problem with shortnames emerged. Shortnames were generated automatically on the basis of their titles. And with every Folder, Page and Form mailer this problem remained - we had to rename all the shortnames to make them the same as in the root.
    http://www.offshorecompany.com/company
    http://www.offshorecompany.com/ru/company
  • when a Page from initially translated folder was translated, it was put into the corresponding translated folder in 'Ru', so the only difficulty with it was to rename the shortname for every page.

    http://www.offshorecompany.com/ru/company/strategy.asp
  • PloneFormMailers had to be copied, as they failed to be translated at once. That's why we doubled them, and only after that it became possible to translate form mailers.

Meta tags on translated pages were changed with the help of Plone SEO product.

Plone Book for Content Managers

My first collection of articles on Plone-related topics is now available.

Now that I feel more or less confident about what Plone is and what a person can achieve with its help, I want to share my knowledge with newly-become Content Managers. When I was a greenhorn in this sphere, I was said that the best way for me to get started was to read some Plone books, tutorials, articles, blogs, etc. There is quite a few writings devoted to this management system, but any written piece becomes outdated even quicker than it is published, as the new products appear, old versions are developed and improved. What we in Quintagroup decided to do is to share with you our view on this matter. With writing some blogs and tutorials on the recent issues we want to keep you side by side with what is happening on the "Plone Planet". That is how the idea of writing a Plone Book for Content Managers appeared. This will be a kind of tutorial digest on the most recent issues for novices.

The book we are writing now is at the disposal of anyone who visits TalkQuintagroup site. If there is something you would like to know about the whole Plone, you are welcome.

About Me, Olha

Some information about who I am.

My name is Olha Pelishok, I'm a 21-year old student from Lviv (Ukraine). At the moment I'm at the fifth year at the Department of Foreign Languages at Lviv Ivan Franko University. Besides, I've just begun to get my second higher education -  this time at the Economic Department. When I was choosing my speciality for the first time, I was sure I wanted to be a teacher of English or a translator, but now I guess it's a bit not enough for me, that's why I applied for the second speciality. I really hope, it'll be useful for me in the future.

Now I work as a content manager at the Quintagroup company, that gives Content Management System Development Services to a wide range of clients.

According to my horoskope sign I'm Gemini, and I can undoubtfully say that I'm a real one. I'm always on run, I can't stay at one place for a very long period of time, I'm just getting bored. I'm always looking for something new: new experience, new acquaintances, new hobbies. I must add that I can't live without sport. I think that a person has to be active to live, we have to improve our physical state or at least maintain one. That's the reason why I attend shaping classes and go for jogging every summer morning. I try to move, walk, swim as much as possible.

I must admit that I'm lazy sometimes, but mostly I hate doing nothing, it makes me feel so useless... Right now, I'm working, studying, giving private classes of English to some pupils. Sometimes it can be tiring, But I know I'll manage to cope with it. I just have to really believe in myself. And I'm doing that successfully!
