Using content staging to create and test translated webpages before going live

Currently, I can't use Content Staging to create and test translated website pages. I just have to take my chances on launching them on my live site. With 275 new pages all going live at once, this is problematic. Please add the ability to use Content Staging to create and test page translations.

I fully agree. It is crucial to add that feature

Absolutely agree. We are in the middle of a redesign and the translations functions is crucial for that.

Yes this creates a fairly major workflow issue for customers who have already have a live site on HubSpot and are designing a new site that will have page translations. Especially enterprise sites with hundreds of pages...

This is a really important feature for being able to manage a redesign of a multi-language site. Say we only had capacity and resources to work on the French translated pages but the Master pages are in English. Without being able to load these French pages into the staging tool, we'd essentially have to work in the main CMS and make sure no-one hits the publish button until the redesign is complete (which could be weeks or even months!). This also means no-one can update any copy on the pages during this redesign period, which impacts time-sensitive pages like events pages.

This would be very useful! We always have trouble when migrating multi-language websites . Please make this happen

Having looked at it in more depth today it seems that this feature is now enabled. Smiley Very Happy

Hello @Jim_B2BML ,

 

I have tried again but I can't see how this is now possible. Would you be so kind to let me know how you do it?

Thanks a lot

Giuseppe

Apologies, @Giuseppe. I mispoke. 

 

I was referring to it now being possible to MOVE translation pages into staging. i.e. the translated page already exists. 

 

I realise now that you want to create new translations from within the staging tool so you can thoroughly test them before making live. You're right, we've also not been able to find a way to do this.

Yes - please make this happen. Just went through this and learned that instead of replacing the translated pages, HS created new ones. It has caused us a lot of headaches on the back end and have led to visitors viewing the wrong versions of the site.
