How to build an additional language version of a website in the quickest way

 

 

 Create an additional language version of a website

  1. In order to create an additional language version of a website, enter WebWave builder and at the top of it select "+" next to a list of languages versions. 


     
  2. In a new window select a new language:

 

 Don't copy content

By ticking a box next to "Don't copy content", you will create a new website from a scratch.

 

 Copy content from

By ticking a box next to "Copy content from", new language version will be created as a copy of chosen language version. What's left to do is translate its content. 

 

 

 Add a language menu

In order to allow users to easily choose a language version of your website, add a language menu from a toolbar on the left side of the builder.

 

 

 Default language

The default language of your website is a language version of a website which will be displayed when the user enters it. If you linked to your website a domain yourwebsite.com and set English as a default language,  user who enters it will see an English version. Other language versions will be displayed under http://yourdomain.com/language, np. german version will be available under http://twojadomena.pl/gr.

 

In order to choose a default language, select it on a languages list:

 

 

 

 Subpages URL addresses on different language versions

Let's say you have a website in two languages - English and German. Each version has two subpages - home page and contact. The English language has been set as default. You have a domain mydomain.com. URL addresses will look more or less like this:

 

For the English version:

http://mydomain.com - home page

http://mydomain.com/contact - contact

 

For the German version:

http://mydomain.com/gr - home page

http://mydomain.com/gr/Kontakt - contact

 

 

 Delete a language version

To delete a language version of a website, go to languages list and select red "x" next to the chosen language. If you delete a default language, another will automatically replace it.

 

 

 How to build an additional language version of a website in the quickest way

When you create an additional language version of a website, keep in mind that changes made on them will not affect other versions. The best practice is to firstly focus on website style, and only after it's done, add content and language versions. What's left to do is translate content. You won't have to spend hours on editing each version style.
