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.

+1 definitely needed!


+1 for content staging improvement for multilanguage pages.

If you want to redesign the page, I don't think it is possible to redesign all the pages of a multilanguage group.

What I did was :

  1. Redesign the English version using content staging
  2. Push the new English version live
  3. Cloned it and transalated it to French
  4. Unpublished the old French page
  5. Changed the URL of the new French page to the one of the Old French page
  6. Recreated the multilanguage group
  7. Continued with other languages



+1 We are urgently in need of this feature

Would love to see this feature. Very much work right now. 


Is there any updates on this feature? And what would be the alternate solution to publish content staging for both English and French at the same time?


I tested another alternative to this approach and found that there is a possibility to publish stage multi-language pages. This is just one solution that I found and may not be ideal but here are the steps that I attempted.

1. Content Stage both the English and French pages simultaneously. (Optional: have the URL slugs be the same for each page for consistency) and for the non-English page, set the page language to your language of choice.

2. Publish both pages to the live domain.

3. Go to Website Pages and select the secondary language page and click on Edit and then Add to Multi-Language Group and select the primary language page. You would have to do this for each and every page that you are redesigning.

The problem I see with this solution is that when you want to redesign
the page, it is easier to redesign one language and then clone / translate.
If you stage both pages simultaneously, then you have to redesign both
pages separately, no?

You could create a page template where the modules can be easily edited for multi-language content.  For example, your page has all your modules set up on a drag-and-drop template and each module has editable fields. The menu itself can be a global module and built where you can toggle between the English text and French menus as well.

So when you do clone a page on the Content Staging platform, you can easily translate and edit the text as needed.

If you had set up your modules within a flexible column, then you would technically have to add each manually to the pages.


We use a theme which does not have that 😞
