The technologies required for multi language website design are well established. Over the course of 2013 Steady internet has worked on creating and upgrading multi lingual sites using WordPress, Joomla and Moodle. Languages include Chinese French, German and Spanish. Currently we have our first job creating a site which will work in Scottish Gaelic(currently working in English only). Previously we have worked on translation systems using enterprise tools such as IBM’s Domino.
In WordPress our tool of choice is WPML. This is a commercial plugin which works very well and offers project management tools for translating multiple pages and dealing with different translators.
Moving to a Multi Language Website
If you have a website in English and find that your customer base is in China is expanding then it may be time to look at upgrading. The first part of the process is to look at your current site and decide which parts would benefit most from being available to the Chinese market. XinXin is our team member who can look at your project and discuss the opportunities and any problems which may come with( she decided to stay in Scotland after coming from China to further her degree in law and politics). For the European languages Alistair is the contact with a professional translation background.
