I am investigating the multi-language feature of SilverStripe for a customer.

One feature I am trying to find is: "How to create a translated version of a whole sub-tree in one operation" ?
For example, they would like to create all these pages in english first :

+ About Us
--> About
--> Executive team
--> US Job Openings
--> International Job Openings
--> Contact

And then have the whole "About Us" sub-tree copied into multiple localized versions.

Is there a way to "translate" "About Us" all at one ? I tried the "Batch Action" option of the CMS , selected all the pages under
"About Us" and clicked on Translate-->Create but this created a localized version of "About Us" only.

Can you tell me if this is possible and how? (it is *very* time consuming to create translated pages one at a time )
Thank you.

After more research on this Forum, I found :

Any chance that this is a core feature? Any plan?
