Microsites are awesome. They allow us to change the site navigation relative to a term. With the increased need for multi-language support we have turned to two options Google Translate and Microsites. For a few of our clients, microsites for each language are a must because it gives them complete control over the content. This works great for everything except for persistent links in the header and footer. We can use exotic views-block arguments to display the language specific persistent links on navigation term pages (see image) but this does not allow us to display them on the post level. Note: to have the correct navigation show up for each microsite post, it needs to be tagged to a term within the correct language.
