Our site is currently in English and Chinese (simplified) which was done with manual translation. We will be adding several more language in the coming weeks using primarily machine translation.

When I read the getting started documentation - it says to follow the wizard to start adding languages. But as we are adding languages after the site has been live for sometime I am looking for the proper procedure to follow so that I do not negatively impact the word that has been done already.

Could you point me to the appropriate documentation?
