Most of the sites we make are monolingual. However, making it multilingual can be very helpful. Having content in multiple languages expands the website's audience and makes it easier to communicate meaningful information to customers or partners.
Usually two languages chosen - the language of the country of the website and English as international.
• Multilingual interface
The creation of a multilingual website involves many aspects and can be implement
to varying degrees.
Simple level - multilingual user interface.
Names of menu items, form fields, button labels, etc. - these are all texts of the user interface.
• Multilingual content
Multilingual content is a more difficult task to implement.
The presence of articles, news or product descriptions on the site implies the need for a version of each text in the languages used. In addition, according to the rules, each of the pages should be link to a similar one in another language. There are different options for resolving the issue.
1. For every news, article, or any other page there are versions in all languages. Moreover, all texts (including titles and signatures) must be translate into all languages of the site.
2. Several copies of the same site created, but for each separate language.
3. Combined approach. For example, a description of a product displayed in all languages of the site, and a blog or news lists exist independently for each version.
In each specific case, it is necessary to select the best option based on the ratio of tasks and the cost of work.
When designing multilingual sites, it is necessary to pay more attention to the structure of the site and the possibility of proper SEO for each language version.
Attention! We’re doing Thai localization for WordPress sites!
To evaluate the work, we will need to investigate the feasibility and complexity of adding language versions to the original website.
In case of impossibility or unreasonable complexity of using the existing CMS site, we offer migration to CMS WordPress.
In any case, we are looking for the least costly option with SEO in mind.
If the site is built from scratch or is completely renewed, then, to a certain extent, this gives a great freedom of choice for making the right decision.
It is possible to transfer a copy of the site to our platform for the duration of the work with the subsequent publication of the finished multilingual site.
