Table Of Contents Preparing Translation: Deriving a Translated Site

Deriving a new localized site means that you create a copy of an existing site. The content, structure and appearance of the new site is exactly like that of its master. Afterwards, you can start the translation of the derived content.

In order to derive a site, do the following:

  1. In the Header Bar open the Main menu and select Sites. The sites window opens.

  2. Select the site you want to derive from and click the Derive a new Localized Site icon. Alternatively you may use the context menu. A modal window opens up.

  3. By default, the Locale field will be filled with the locale of the master site and will be marked red, because the locale has to be unique. Therefore, you have to choose a new locale first. Subsequently, new values for the URL segment and the site manager group will be calculated automatically using the selected locale. (You can add new locales to the /Settings/Options/Settings/LocaleSettings content.)

    The URL segment, which will be part of the URL that leads to this site, must also be unique. In the unlikely event that the calculated URL segment already exists, the field will be marked red and you have to insert a new value.

    If one of the site manager groups has not been created yet, the corresponding field will be marked red. Enter names of existing user groups separated by comma or create one for the calculated name using the Site Manager. See also Section 3.15, “User Administration” in Content Server Manual. When you want to use a new group that you have to create first, you have to restart the deriving process after you have created the group.


    Folder Rights

    If some of the given groups do not have sufficient permissions to access the newly created site, they will get required rights assigned. New rights apply directly to the newly created site-root-folder. Note, that this does not apply to possibly required rights outside of the site folder, like for example global folders for Themes and Settings.

    It is recommended, that the chosen groups have all required workflow roles applied, which especially the group translation-manager-role. Role assignment is not part of the site derivation process.

  4. Click OK. The site will now be derived. This can take some time, depending on the size of your site.

    If the site folder does not exist, yet, it will be created. Use the Site Manager to further adjust rights rules if desired. For example, the site manager group has no rights on the newly created site folder.

You see the derived site as a subsite of the master site.
