    How do you implement two languages ​​on the same website? I would like to position my site for both the Spanish and English languages. Is there a set way to do it?

    you can use flag emojis on menues and submenues, like that:Publii_Languages_Screenshot_20220623_014619

    There’s no easy way to do this yet, unfortunately…. Some people have resorted to creating separate sites for each language.

    Thanks for the answer, I am implementing a somewhat laborious but simple way and it seems very effective. I will publish in a few days a post explaining the process

    To elaborate on my solution, which is simple but admittedly takes some tagging effort:

    I tag every article with a language identifier, like English article, Spanish Article and so on.

    Then, I can simply create emoji flagged language submenues linking to tag (i. e language) pages, i.e English, Spanish, German etc.

    I can then choose from two variants:

    1. the main menu entry being a general language placeholder – like the word “lingua” or “language – with the language options in the submenues.

    2. the main menu entry being an indicator (and link) to the main language, e.g. English – again with he language options in the submenues.

    It’s kind of hacky and again – takes some tagging effort – but then again, it’s a solution that works right away without the devs even considering official multi-language support for posts – which would presumably require  some kind of tagging action anyway.

    Sorry I didn’t see your comment. I’ve been busy with various projects and haven’t had time to make a good tutorial. I had left it aside because I read that one of the updates planned for this year was the multilanguage functionality. Do you think it would be useful?

    I’m not an expert on the subject and wanted to test it myself before posting anything that might lead to an error. It seems that no duplicate pages are detected and everything has been indexed perfectly

    No worries! I just wanted to share your solution here in case anyone was following this thread. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing process!
