    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.

    If you want simple, automatic google translations, see this amazing thread: https://forum.getpublii.com/topic/plugin-simple-website-translator/

    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!

    Hey seb_oi: I remembered that you left an explanation somewhere about how you implemented your multi-lingual site: https://gfrprebartechnology.com

    But I can’t find the post anywhere on this forum (which is a nightmare for long-term information saving / knowledge-base building). Do you happen to have the instructions written anywhere?

    There is really no “optimal” way to do it, at least as far as SEO is concerned, if it is not done completely manually. I’m going to create a post explaining the process although I’m telling you that the best way to do it is also the most tedious one.

    @candidexmedia I have almost finished the tutorial, but in case you want to take a look at it. I’m going to translate it and upload it to the forum when I have it complete, let’s see if I make time this week. It is the tutorial to do it without segmentation of URLs by language, that is without the example.com/en / For ease of implementation.

    To do it with this structure it is necessary to do several more things, which takes me more time to explain and is not an optimal way to do it because of the time involved. I leave the link here so you can take a look at it mienrtas I finish it. Cheers
