Key learnings>  Multi-Lingual sites need to be complete>  Use webpaths in Squiz CMS •  www,clearswift.com/apac/>  Nested content for the areas of the site that are static but ‘localised’ •  Even nested content within nested content>  Make use of Snippets for content that is always different>  Remember … If you edit a page the link to the master is broken
