Fantastic!

Just to confirm this duplicates the pages into the new locale, but not the content.

how about adding the google diacritize? and then sites can be basically translated without any effort!

yes, of course, silverstripe does not translate the text

the createTranslation method just duplicates the site (with the content in the already existing language) and saves it with a new id and a new url (eg: if it was /home/ and you do a createTranslation from de_DE to en_US it then will be /home-en-US/)

(its the same as if you go to the translation tab in your cms, and press the button to create the site on another page.)

also its good to use the createTranslation method, because it is the one that is from the multilanguage module, and will automatically creates a relation between the pages

so for example, we have mysite.com ( = mysite.com/home )

if I want to switch the language you can do that by adding ?locale=en_US

mysite.com/ => will show you: mysite.com/home
mysite.com/?locale=de_DE => will show you: mysite.com/home
mysite.com/?locale=en_US => will show you: mysite.com/home-en-US (or what ever url your en-us homepage has)

Yep, I was just clarifying for the folks reading the thread...

I am extremely interested to duplicate the text, chrome of course does it for me automatically and those with google tool bars I guess it may do it too, but it would be create to have a site that didn't need JavaScript and would just create the it out of the box. Anyone got JavaScript translations working?
