Actually, in Sitefinity you are able to choose between synchronized translations of a page or pages in split mode (changes, made to one of the translations aren't applied to the other). However, this is not a valid scenario when you're working with templates, since the initial idea of a template is to provide an identical appearance to different pages that are using it.
