SharePoint - Using Hyperlinks In Variations

Hi

We have variations deployed within our SharePoint 2010 site and the english pages are published to the variations pages, I want to put a hyperlink on a page that directs the end user to the variation site for their language but it keeps going to /EN instead of /DE for german.

so for example i want to go to the depts page and need to configure a hyperlink/

when an english user clicks the link from https://intranet.braindumpblog.co.uk/en/default.aspx to go to the departments page the link should take them to  https://intranet.braindumpblog.co.uk/en/depts/default.aspx

When a german user clicks the link from https://intranet.braindumpblog.co.uk/de/default.aspx to go to the departments page the link should take them to https://intranet.braindumpblog.co.uk/DE/depts/defaults.aspx

How do i set the URL to go to the correct site, when i only set the link once

The hyperlink is part of your content and should be translated (including target url) along with your variations content.

I have tried;

/depts
./depts
../depts

but all of them still show the url as /en and not /de
