    suresh,

    Are each of the pages different and have separate content or are they synced?  When you create a translation of the page it will ask you if you want to sync the contents or create a different set of contents.  If they are in sync the contents will be exactly the same.

    Also, the language selector widget itself has a few settings.  I am testing with the following settings...

    • Display language selector as...  Drop-down menu
    • Include the current language in the selector UNCHECKED
    • What to do with languages without translations?  Redirect to the home page of the language of the missing translation

    Are these settings similar to yours?

    suresh,

    In my test I created a home page with three languages (English/Spanish/Chinese), each with different content.  I then created another page called "products" in just English.  Using the settings described above for my language selection, when I change the drop down to Spanish it redirects to the Spanish home page.

    Is this what you are expecting your site to also do?
