    Multi-Language Site

    How to Create a Multi-Language Site

    There are one of two ways to create a multi-language site for your guests:

    1. Supported by both Standard or Premium Subscriptions. The first way to have a site in multiple languages is to, simply, create your site in those languages. For example, we see many clients that do one page in English, one page in Spanish (for example), one page in English, one page in Spanish, etc. OR, in the same way, you could do one section in English, one section in Spanish, etc.

    Then, your guests will come to your site and see both languages and will read the language he/she prefers.

    2. Supported by Premium Subscription Only. The second way is to set language groups in your Guest Book, and then language permissions on your site (see here on how to set groups and permissions).

    Using the same example as above, you would start by creating a group for English and then a group for Spanish, and then tag each guest in your Guest Book with the language he/she knows best. Then, create your pages on your site in both langauges (per #1 above), and set permissions for each page. So the English pages would get the English group permissions and the Spanish pages, the Spanish group permissions. 

    Finally, when your guests sign into your site, we will show the langague you set for him/her. So if that guest is part of the Spanish group, we will only show the Spanish pages or sections on your site.

    After setting this up, we always recommend logging into your site as one of your guests (use his/her email). You will see exactly what he/she will see, and it'll give you a great idea if things are working properly. 

    Lastly, please keep in mind that our sites do not do the following things:

    • Translate text. If you want to have your site in two languages, you will need to type in the specific lanugage/s you want to show up.
    • Have a button where guests can choose or toggle which language to see the site in.

    Supported Languages

    Most modern language characters are supported by our wedding websites, and all languages that are supported will always be displayed left-to-right (so languages that do not read left-to-right would, generally speaking, not be supported).

    Also, you can use multiple languages on your sites - just type in the language you want to appear.
