As the site manager for acquia.com, I had a lot to think about when we originally decided to translate the site into other languages. Why are we translating? What will we be translating? How will we handle pages that aren’t translated? What modules do we need to add? What translation services will we use? How will we maintain all languages? What are the best ways to achieve my goals in Drupal 7? My past experience with translation in Drupal was with a Drupal 6 website and we did a multisite install, so we shared modules and themes but had separate websites and databases.
