All rights reserved.http://blog.globalizationpartners.com/ 4 New Feature: Projects Content Editors and Authors typically prefer to publish sets of changes together. For example, a content page may have several components like page content, images, blocks, etc. An update process for one page maybe related to or dependent on other pages or blocks. EPiServer created a new feature "Projects" in order to facilitate and control the process of publishing several components together to save time and avoid confusion during the publishing process.

  8. 8. EPiServer 8: First Release Since Ektron Merger © Globalization Partners International. All rights reserved.http://blog.globalizationpartners.com/ 8 Utilizing Projects I have created an example to illustrate how EPiServer's Projects feature can be utilized. User: A large hotel that owns several properties worldwide. Challenges: Managing content and its translations into several languages is a bit tricky, time consuming and also very difficult for a central department to handle.
  9. 9. EPiServer 8: First Release Since Ektron Merger © Globalization Partners International.

Currently all the content authoring and related translations are managed by the Content Department. Each of the three hotel properties have multiple departments: Rooms, Restaurants, Entertainment, and Family Activities.

Furthermore, for managing maintenance and translated content in a global environment, having an organized structure where you can oversee all of your projects allows you to preserve the consistency of the content.

As a result, Globalization Partners International (GPI), a certified EPiServer Solution Partner, has upgraded their EPiServer Translation Service Connector to work with the newest features of version 8.
