still in development process but getting close to deploy our site to Netlify.
We have plans to write content in our sites main language (en-US), via Netlify CMS built with 11ty.
This content should then be translated into XY other languages via a third-party API.
After giving it some thoughts, I believe the best way to achieve this would be to run a scheduled Lambda Function with Netlify.
The function would then scan all/parts of the content directories to check which ones have a frontmatter key of
translated: false, translate content and frontmatter and then save it and make a github commit.
The netlify CMS is configured to set the translated key to false whenever a post is created or updated, to ensure translations are always up to date.
Now in theory this all tracks I believe
What about reality though?
Is what we’re planning possible or are any parts of the above not doable, or maybe require a different approach?
