Dear Nuria,

Thank you for the manual. For web page content editing I am using the website builder inline editor, which automatically  populates translation table fields after saving translated web page.  The problem appears when I change the content of the page in the source language. The very  similar scenario is:

1. Install second language (German)
2. Go to to web site builder and create a new page (Content->New Page)
3. Insert a text block (for example About) and save it.
4, Select the German language. The page is populated with the same text in English.
5. Now press Translate button and translate the content, and save changes.
6. Return to English version, and make any change in the content. For example add just a comma, and save.
7. Go to German version and you will see that previously translated content is replaced with new English one. Previously translated content is lost from the front end.

Are you using the Translated terms?

We created a little manual to show how to use it internally, regarding to email content, see the extract attached, but I believe you can apply it to any other terms.

I'm not sure how it would work with website content, but it might be worth having a look.

Hi all,

Can anybody suggest the sustainable way to manage multilingual static website content in Odoo. I have the following problem:

When I make any change in the content of the source language (for example, add a new word or bold some word) the previously translated content is completely replaced with the content of the source language. In this way it is not possible to efficiently maintain the content of multilingual web sites.
