Nestlé

multilingual site for one of Nestlé's product lines

We manage a large Drupal 7 site for Nestlé, with sub-sites for dozens of markets, each with its own language. The site features periodic special promotions, videos, social media integration, and a heavily customized administrative workflow. To facilitate translation of all aspects of the site, we leveraged the i18n module. It allows for translating most strings (bits of text) on a Drupal site, but the built-in UI for that is cumbersome. 

Custom Translation Module

The client needed a way to allow local markets to edit their market's content AND relevant translatable text WITHOUT being able to edit any other markets' content or strings. This was impossible with the built-in UI due to permission / access right limitations, so we built a custom module that handles this via easy to use Ajax forms, which use their own variables, but inherit any existing i18n strings so that re-entry of data is not necessary. That's an important considering there are 57 countries represented on the site, each with many pages.
