Sorry, I naturally meant "none of the high profile shareware/freeware  
CMS systems, like WordPress for example, properly support  

That's to say, I can't use the default installation of WordPress to  
power a site where the visitor can switch between (say) English,  
French, German and Italian content at will. That requires an input  
environment which is capable of handling content in several languages  
concurrently, which WordPress - and, as far as I am aware, all other  
popular freeware CMS systems - cannot. (Not without a third party add- 
on, anyway.)
