    Subsites & Translatable - Any experiences? Link to this post

    I'm going to use subsites with ss2.4 very soon and in 4...12 months I will need translations for my sites.
    So I wonder if the combination Subsites + Translatable is doable. I recall subsites adds separate SiteTree for each site while Translatable adds two columns for the Page to distinguish between language versions. So I guess theoretically they should work well together. Anyone tried to use those two modules at the same time? If they don't cooperate well I need to figure out other solution and it's probably better to think it through even before I start using subsites..

    Although Subsites generally works with translatable in SS 2.4.1, it is not a good implementation.
    1. Subsites does absolutly no validation when creating new Subsites.
    2. Deleting a Subsite does not delete related Pages/Subdomains in Database. Your Database will bloat over time.

    Bump this, and has anyone successfully used these two together? I'm sure there are gotchas and I'd love to hear about them.

    @dompie re: point (2) is bloat an issue specifically with deleting/creating subsites, or when using the site in general? I plan on having 2 subsites, no more no fewer, and I don't foresee adding/deleting any. Thanks!
