SharePoint - Using Hyperlinks In Variations


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 to go to the departments page the link should take them to

When a german user clicks the link from to go to the departments page the link should take them to

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.
