Spotlight: Content Translation

When it comes to translating your site’s content in Drupal 7, we have two possibilities. There is the core “Content translation” module and the contributed “Entity translation” module. They have quite different approaches to translation. The major difference is that “Content translation” lets you create multiple versions of the same content in different languages and associates the translated versions together as a set. Each translation is an individual node, so for each piece of content on your site, you will have as many nodes as you have translations. For example, an English node with three other language translations (say, Danish, French, and Spanish) will be a set of four full nodes on your site. With “Entity translation,” you only have one node (an entity), and each field on the node will have multiple values, one for each translation.
