How about a forum on multilingual CMS?

I am no longer a translator, and I am now in charge of multilingual activities for a large organization.

I think that CMS have become so important now, that they deserve a forum of their own.

For those who don't know yet: a CMS (Content management system) is basically a website, but with automatic features (like registering users in a database, calendaring...).

For those who know it all: it is a obvious that one of the main preoccupations of users is choosing the right CMS, because there are so many of them. We have to discuss that from our own point of view: the management of linguistic versions of contents.

Most translators will have to deal with CMS in the coming years, probably. I think that would be useful for everybody.

I´m not familiar with CMS, if it will affect my rofession in the coming years, I am certainly willing to participate in the discussion. So please, sing me in and keep me updated. Thanks and best wishes to all.

I'd like to know more! May 24, 2011

Hi Arnaud,

I've had a client ask if I can translate directly into their CMS. Before I reply saying I wouldn't have a clue how to, it might be easier than I think. What does it involve exactly? How do they give access to their CMS system?

Thanks for any help you can offer.
