    Complex Multilingual Environment?

    I am involved in creating a new website for our business, which exists in a complex multilingual and regulatory environment. I'm wondering if anyone has tackled a similar scenario and how you may have dealt with it?

    Jurisdictions: We deal with a heavily regulated product with differing rules of operation under different licenses globally. For arguments sake we will say there are 5 of these 'jurisdictions'.

    Languages: We also offer our product in many languages, for this example we will say 10 languages, but the list of languages will grow in the future.

    Some languages, such as English, will operate across all jurisdictions, with slight variances in content (such as disclaimers at the bottom of the page), while others, like Spanish, may exist across 2 jurisdictions.

    What's the best way to cater for this? Is there a different best approach from the last version of Umbraco 7 as opposed to Umbraco 8?

    Hello MrJones and welcome to the Umbraco forum :)

    In regards to figure out how to best deal with the languages I think that you will find that Umbraco 8 is a good fit since language variations have been baked right into the core as opposed to Umbraco 7 where you in some situations will need to rely on 3rd party packages.

    However multi language sites can be done in different ways depending on different scenarios like will the sites be 1-1 on any language? Or will they vary etc. - But if I was in your shoes I would consider using Umbraco 8.

    You can read more about language variants here and you will probably also find this blog post about the v8 release useful

    There's also further documentation about how to setup language variants here

    I hope this answers the language part for you?
