The plugin I use is not available but there is a much simpler version that
shows the effect:


AFAIK all it does is give you a postmeta field for 'other language' and
display the results on the post, but in many cases that is the only thing
you really need to turn two seperate sites into translations of each other.

What it's missing is things like tracking the original author of some
content separate from it's translator, and the ability to handle more than 2
languages with any kind of grace.

I agree that my multisite approach shouldn't necessarily be part of a plugin
designed for single-site, as a lot of the logic is totally seperate. I think
in theory you could have one plugin that did both, so it's possible, but
it's not really desirable to mix them together.
