I am building a multilingal Drupal site for a client, I successfully have all of the i18n moudles etc installed, and its all working pretty dandy... finally. By the way we are manually typing in the translations not using the translation servers.
I was using the business theme with the built in picture slider, however the client now wants to add descriptions to the slides and have them translate. After a bit of research I found that I had no hope with that slider so I have successfully replaced it with nivo slider.
From the research I have done it seems as if it is possible to translate the descriptions with Nivo slider, but for the life of me I can't work it out. I'm starting to tear my hair out as I have spent too much time researching this. can anyone shed some light?
One way I thought would of been to create slides for each language and limit them to each language page (as described here http://drupal.org/node/1367786) However I am having the same issue as post 4 where limiting it to /de/ won't work, the reply in post 5 says to try to limit it by the Node ID, But since this is on the front page I don't see how I can do this? Is there even a separate node ID for each languages front pages?
I mean ideally it would of been great if there was a way to add a translation field for the description, similarly to for a block,
Also here it states that nivo slider now has i18n support, but for the life of me I can't see how.
If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very thankful.
