We are considering purchasing Sitefinity 4.0 for use on an upcoming project for one of our clients. Localization of content will be important as the site will be available in many languages. I understand how to use the "fallback" culture to serve the invariant version of content that has not yet been localized. But I have a few questions...
1. Imagine that the default culture for our site is English, but that some of our users will be requesting French. The site comprises a few pages. One of the pages hosts a blog. Most of the pages (but not all) and most of the blog stories (but not all) have been translated into French. Is it possible to configure Sitefinity such that, if a user requests the French version of the site, Sitefinity will only show those pages and blog stories that have been translated into French?
2. Imagine that we now add another new page (or blog story) that will exist only in English. However, we DO want this particular content item to be displayed (in English, untranslated) in the French version of the site (whilst continuing to hide most other English-only content).
3. Imagine that we now want to create a page or blog story that is specific to the French version of the site (that is, there will be no English-language version). Can we prevent this page from appearing in the English version of the site?
I would be grateful for any advice on the above, and I look forward to seeing the full beta of 4.0.
