As we saw in the previous section, in a website with multilingual content management infrastructure, there is no need to create new files every time content is made available in a new language. It is only needed to set the section as available in the new language and insert the content using the administrative pages. No files need to be sent to the webserver that hosts the website.

Below is an example of the creation of a section with multilingual support in a website with consistent management:

multilingual website section

In this example we can see that the website provides content in four languages. The most significant benefit a multilingual content management system can provide is in the interface because it is used to edit content.  An example of this is identified below :

multilingual website section editing

For each language in which the section is available, the content management system will generate a tab that allows us to edit the content in the specified language. As we saw in the virtual urls section, the website will have only one physical file that will show the content in the language requested by the website visitor.

There are other features that are highly desired in a content management system, regardless it is multlingual or not. Let's now take a look in these features.
