I've got a CCK content type called 'projects' with about 10 fields, including an ImageField that allows for multiple images.
There are two languages defined for the site: English (the default), and Chinese.
The projects have been created in English by the client.
Now, they want to add translations for all the projects into Chinese. So, I've:
- enabled content translation
- created a new 'project' node (e.g., node/234) and populated just the title and body fields (all the other values are the same between both nodes)
- gone back to the original English node and added node/234 as the translation
The problem of course is that when I go into the Chinese translation for the page, the field values for the original node aren't there, so at the moment, the site editors would have to re-add the values all over again.
Is there a module or Drupal setting for addressing this issue, or would it be better to, say, create a module to run a query that populates the fields in Chinese translations with the values from its sister English node? I'm not adverse to writing such a module, but if there's a solution already, of course that would be better.
