RESTRICTIONS: The Translations module has the following restrictions:
- You cannot send one item to more than one translation service.

You can automatically send for translation the following content:
- Pages and Page templates
NOTE: When you send a page or page template for translation, the content in this page or template is not sent to the translation service. You need to translate the content separately.
EXAMPLE: If you have a page that displays a news item, you must send to translation separately the news item from the News module and the page.
The only case when content is sent together with a page or page template is when you have a Content block on the page that is not shared. If it is a shared content block, you must send it for translation from the Content blocks module.
