WP Multisite and multilingual (1 post)

    I have several small WP sites which I'd like to group into a single WP Multisite install.
    Let's say I have:
    site01.mynetwork.com
    site02.mynetwork.com
    site03.mynetwork.com

    Guess that I will have a redirection for each site at my domain registrar which will redirect
    site01.com to site01.mynetwork.com
    site02.com to site02.mynetwork.com
    site03.com to site03.mynetwork.com

    Question 1: Does this make sense?
    Question 2: can I have a SEPARATE db for each one of these sites?

    What about languages? I want English to be the DEFAULT language of all sites, wether it's used in the site or not.

    Let's say:
    site01 is in English, French, Spanish
    site02 is in English, German, Portuguese
    site03 is in German only

    How does his translate into wordpress?

    site01.mynetwork.com/fr/
    site01.mynetwork.com/es/

    site02.mynetwork.com/de/
    site02.mynetwork.com/pt/

    site03.mynetwork.com/de/ with a change of redirection at the registrar from site03.com to site03.mynetwork.com/de/ until English is used on the site.

    Question 3: is this possible?

    Question 4: can I use the same database for each site, with a different table prefixe for each additional language, ie. wp_en, wp_fr, wp_de, etc...?

    Thanks in advance for your advice.
