    Thanks for your question.

    I haven’t done a great deal of work on MOSS and to be honest with you, I just quickly developed a proof-of-concept for our sales guys that’s it.

    From what I read and if I recall correctly, site variations only copy the content and there’s no automated translation feature available. You might have to do some custom development. I think Yes, the content in the destination gets overwritten.

    HI Ratnakar,

    The blog about variations was good. I have a query regarding the variations – I would really appreciate if you respond to it.

    It is good to know that using variations the Page layouts of the destination Site was used. But what about the content

    Source is in English and Destination in Japanese. User creates a new Page in Source and publishes it. This page is available at the destination. Second Users picks it and translates manually and publishes it.
    After some time, the first users updates the Content in Source. This will triigger the workflow to move the content to destination. Will the translated content in Destination be overwritten with the latest content from destination?

    Thanks in advance

    Cheers,
    –Suyog
