[Resolved] site structure with Toolset and WPML

This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.

Problem:

can WPML deal with such a structure or we are forced to have a specular site in all languages? What happens with the post/pages that will not be available in a specifica language?

Solution:

Within WPML plugin setting page:

Dashboard-> WPML-> Languages, there is an option "How to handle languages without translation", you can choose one of below options:

- Skip language

- Link to home of language for missing translations

If you use the first option "Skip language", then in the language switcher, it displays links to those translation existed, if there isn't other language translation, it won't display any link.

Relevant Documentation:

We are building a multilingual site and we are evaluating the combination with Toolset and WPML. SInce the pages/posts in the site could be different from a language to another (i.e. english has 10 pages/posts while Italian has 20/30 pages/posts) can WPML deal with such a structure or we are forced to have a specular site in all languages? What happens with the post/pages that will not be available in a specifica language? We want to avoid 404 error pages and simply do not consider pages/post that are not necessary in a specific language.

Is it possible go get that result?
