We recently finished translations and now want to make major changes to just the english version. Is there a way to create a new page to be displayed in english and then display the translated version of the old page when on a different language? My worry is that we will forget to click the minor edit button and will lose our translated content.

if i understand correctly you have a site with 2 languages and you have added your translations already.

is English the default language or secondary ?

For example if you have English and Spanish and now you want to change the English content you will need to make sure that you are translating independently.

access your page's edit page and then use the language switcher in the top header to switch to the secondary language ,do you see the option to "translate independently ? "
