What you need to know before adding Other Languages to your Website?

Creating a website that works in multiple languages is more than just translating your website content. You have to start with creating a website in the source language and then add other languages. Adding other languages depends on how many pages you want to translate and in how many languages. Here are a few options:

  1. If you have one large site that consists of many pages you can consider creating separate websites for each language. After doing this, link between the websites by placing prominently visible language flags right on the top of the website for visitors to notice. Moreover, rather than translating the entire website find out what information actually needs to be translated and what not in the alternate language version.
  2. If the website has less content or you want to translate your website in more than one language then it is recommended to create a single page website that uses anchors to help visitors navigate easily and find the information they are looking for. For every language you want to include, add a new page to the main menu.
  3. In case you do not want to translate all the pages in your website to the target language, you can simply duplicate the pages that you want to translate and allow your visitors to reach the pages using indicative icons on the header.
