Is it possible that node translations aren't new nodes? For example if I translate
/node/1 I get
/node/2 and this is problematic in some cases (comments are not shared between #1 and #2, and entity references are not reused).
i18n. I've got 2 languages configured:
FR. I have content types
Event. Both have Multilingual support: "Enabled, with translations". The
News has fields:
- reference to a
I create 2 node instances:
- /node/1 (#1) Event (EN)
- /node/2 (#2) News (EN) with reference back to #1
I edit #1 and add a translation (FR) and #3 is created. I then translate #2 and #4 is created. The problem is that I have to respecify that the reference from #4 is #3 and not #1. If I use the "Synchronize translations" feature of the content type the workflow is a bit better but still not exactly what I want since on the FR front end when viewing #4 the reference to #1 will be displayed in EN and not FR.
Is there any way to have translations not creating new nodes but instead just translating some fields only?
Also, is the module
i18n the "defacto standard" for implementing multilingual sites in Drual 7? Or is there something better out there?
