I am using Rx 6.7.
I’d like to be able to create a translation of a folder and all of its child contents without incurring a mandatory workflow relationship between the original and translated content.
My testing has concluded that the only way to create a folder translation where all child content is also created as a translation is to use the configuration used by the Translation-Mandatory relationship.
[A standard translation of the folder results in just the folder item being translated and none of its child content]
Furthermore I have found with the Translation-Mandatory relationship, that it is specificially, the Pre-Workflow ‘sys_PublishMandatory’ and ‘sys_UnpublishMandatory’ effects which allow the child content to be deep cloned. Consequently these effects are also what create the mandatory workflow relationship between the original and translated content which we do not want.
I am wondering if anyone has overcome this issue in their implementation or whether Percussion can offer some guidance on this? This is a huge part of a wider stratergy for brining multiple landuage site online as quickly as possible.
I understand that if I need to write a custom effect using the IPSEffect interface is the way to do it, but we see this as a very last resort.
Any feedback would be much apprecaited.
