I created the basic page, then added alias front_page. Next, I created a translation of this node and have the same alias. In the settings admin/config/system/site-information in the field Default front page I added front_page, but on the home page is displayed when you switch the language is the same article, without translation. How to fix it?

You need to use the Variable Translation for that:

  • In Configuration > Regional and languages: Multilingual settings > Variables, enable 'Default front page' as a multilingual variable.
  • Go to Configuration > System > Site information > Front page.
  • Change the language via the section "Select language" at the top of the page to select the language for which you're setting the front page option.
  • Set the 'Default front page' option for the current language.
  • Repeat as necessary for each available language.
