have you ever worked with Muse before? If not, I would suggest learning the basics by following a few tutorials starting here: http://www.adobekb.com/
Muse is simply design, it does help you to push a site live, but once integrated with BC it requires extended knowledge about the tags and modules in BC: http://kb.worldsecuresystems.com/134/bc_1342.html and http://kb.worldsecuresystems.com/134/bc_1345.html. Publishing with Muse: http://www.adobekb.com/launching_pt01.html
This link here goes more in detail: http://kb.worldsecuresystems.com/521/bc_521.html
I would imagine that Muse could help you with the basic outline of the design of your site, but you would have to stop somewhere to integrate dynamic content in order for you to use the same templates with multi-language support.

Thanks for your help Nicole. Yes I worked with Muse before. I created my personal websiste in Dutch. But now I want to create an other site in different languages. I will look into the details you pointed out.
Hi, I have same questions, did you manage to get your multilanguage site, if so if you don't mind could please tell me how. Denis
Hi Denis, Sorry for not replying sooner. I actually managed to create a multilingual site. (See also my other post on http://forums.adobe.com/message/4873218#4873218 and the replies I've received)
I have created an English subfolder where the English site resides. If you want to reuse content, images or video's you have to "point to" the directories where these documents are stored.
First I made a duplicate of the Dutch Adobe Muse file and altered the text content to English. Then I exported the English site on my local hard drive.
Forms are another matter. If you use Adobe Business Catalyst (ABC) they are compiled when you publish you site within Adobe Muse. In my case the English version didn't work. I created a blank form online in ABC with the forms module. Copied the html-code and added with Adobe Dreamweaver CSS-styles. The form (all the html codes and the CSS codes) I copied as an html element in Adobe Muse.
In Adobe Dreamweaver or any HTML-editor I opened the html-pages by changing the codes that points to the directories images, assets, stylesheets and scripts.
I.e: <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css/site_global.css?259224851"/> had to be changed in <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="../css/site_global.css?259224851"/> where the ../ "tells" that in the above directory /css the document can be found.
this works the same with images and other documents.
I.e: <img id="u8668_img" src="images/apartement.jpg" had to be changed in <img id="u8668_img" src="../images/apartement.jpg"
For a small site the above procedure works fine but if you have a large site I think it's better using Adobe Dreamweaver or any other html-editor.
Thank you very much for the info, certainly I will follow your instructions
and let you know the result, coincidentally, I am trying to translate
English to Dutch.
I am using outside server, hopefully it will work.
Thank you again and have a wonderful new year,
i was able to create a multilingual site after much sweat. adobe info on the same is quite vague but i was able to to go around it by creating first the "mother" language then creating additional page of each of pages in the prefered language. then *important: pages having the same content but in difrent language i created a common link for them, say a flag one in english and the other in spanish, then i linked the appropriate language to its appropriate flag.
i hope it helps, a great software indeed.
shared knowleage is great
In the latest version of Adobe Muse it is possible to publish multiple sites in sub-folders.
I've created a bilingual site (Dutch/English) in Adobe Business Catalyst. The Dutch site resides in the root folder and the English site in the sub folder /en.
Please note that when you publish the site via Muse the already existing BC webforms are overwritten (this was or still is a minor bug (I haven't tested it if the bug was solved)). Make sure that you have submitted a webform from the front end and that would create a case so this will not be overwritten or deleted when you publish the site again via Muse.
So first publish the first muse site and then fill the form from the front end and then publish the other.
Insert an absolute URL on the webform instead just selecting the page from the list of the pages when setting up the redirect in Muse.
The above answer was a reply from Adobe Support.
