Language configuration

Here's how to set up a website with different languages.

Languages

The installation comes with three languages and there are more languages you can download. The default language is defined the system settings. A different language can be defined in the settings at the top of each page, for example Language: en.

Here's an English page:

---
Title: About us
Language: en
---
Birds of a feather flock together.

A German page:

---
Title: Über uns
Language: de
---
Wo zusammenwächst was zusammen gehört.

A French page:

---
Title: À propos de nous
Language: fr
---
Les oiseaux de même plumage volent toujours ensemble.

Multi language mode

If you want to translate an entire website, it's best to use the multi language mode. Open file system/config/config.ini and change MultiLanguageMode: 1. Go to your content folder and create a new folder for each language. Here's an example:

Screenshot

The first screenshot shows the folders 1-en, 2-de and 3-fr. This gives you the URLs http://website/ http://website/de/ http://website/fr/ for English, German and French. Here's another example:

Screenshot

The second screenshot shows the folders 1-en, 2-de, 3-fr and default. This gives you the URLs http://website/en/ http://website/de/ http://website/fr/ and a home page http://website/ that automatically detects the visitor's language.

To adjust the navigation open file system/config/config.ini and change Navigation: navigation-multilanguage. You can also show a language selection somewhere else on your website, for example in the footer.
