Publishing/creating representations should me more user-friendly and easier to use (application of filters, etc. should be easier in regard of publishing and to the republishing; publishing in several/all languages with one job/click). At the moment, there are too many manual steps/customizations necessary, to deal with the mentioned situations.
Repulishing should retain all applied settings, like filters, language-settings, etc. => The user should get a presentation with the same configuration, than the 1st publish.
