Question on what is the most common or preferred content tree structure for a multi-region, multi-lingual setup. Our current content tree looks like this:
MyWebsite.com | |-USA | |-AboutUs.aspx (en) | |-Europe | |-AboutUs.aspx (en, fr-fr, de-de)
One thing to note about the current setup:
- Data sources are not being used so the content on the
AboutUs.aspxpage under Europe in en can be entirely different than the same page under USA.
- It is extremely cumbersome to add a new region as the whole content tree for a current region needs to be duplicated and every link updated/changed.
What I am looking for validation on is that a content similar to the following is more standard within Sitecore.
MyWebsite.com |-AboutUs.aspx (en-us, en-eu, de-de) Data Sources |-AboutUs (en-us, en-eu, fr-fr, de-de)
In this example, we have a single language for each region/language combination. If we wanted to add a new region it would be as simple as adding the supporting language. The data source for the page would be maintained in multiple languages but the visible page would only be available in the published versions of the page. In the above example fr-fr is available in the data source but not on the website.
If anyone has any insight into this it would be great. Thanks!
