I'm just starting with october cms, I have to build a website which makes intense use of product information. I therefore have to build a lightweight pim plugin. The problem I'm facing is multi language support in characteristics, let's say it's cars. It's a car with 4 doors and suspension is air.

Characteristic : Doors (needs to be translatable) : 4 (also needs to be translatable but makes no sense here) Characteristic : Suspension (needs to be translatable) : Air (also needs to be translatable)

How do you build this relation so every characteristic label is translatable and the characteristic values are as well. Translatable means I need to cover multiple countries and languages I therefore need full i18 support (http://www.i18nguy.com/unicode/language-identifiers.html). In case of suspension and germany it would be for example : de-DE: Suspension (Dämpfung) : Air (Luft)

There is the Translate plugin that you might want to use. It easily enables you to make any kind of model attribute or frontend text translatable via a backend interface.

That helped, thank you. Is just the question of this special relation which is open. Actually this plugin has it handled as it seems :

There's characteristics with values and the characteristic with the value is assigned to the product id. How would you do that?
