We would like to be able to manually translate questions title and content. The search will need to be adjusted so it displays the 'hits' in the correct language.
The goal is to translate high traffic questions so when an English user, for example, is searching questions, it show the English version of the questions. When another user, let's say Japanese, is searching questions, it display the Japanese version if it exists and if not, it falls back to the English version.
It might also be good to be able to translate answers but that's not a priority.
I don't know if there is another way to achieve this as it's not in the feature list of 1.6.2.
The only way we could think of is by creating 2 databases and build some sort of synchronization script that will copy English changes to the Japanese database. You can see the nightmare of doing that workaround and again that would need to be a complex script since Japanese users could also write a question in English.
