I'm new to Craft, but starting off with building a multilingual site. I wonder what is best practice for storing multilingual content that is used accross sections (i.e. site navigation headings, footer link text). I know about the static translation files, but I want to enable local editors to translate those themselves in the CP.

I am fairly new to Craft myself but I think the best approach for that type of content would be to set up Globals I think you can then make them translatable and common translations can be added to in a translations file. Have a look at the HappyLager site to see how that works. I have found it really useful.

I agree, Globals is your best solution for this. – Anna_MediaGirl Jul 4 '14 at 13:51
