How to make a mutli-lingual website

Content layout and switching between several languages.
There are two ways of making a multi-lingual site. First, you can create two or three projects with separate domains. Second, create several pages in different languages within the same website.

Different languages on different sites
To make a two-language website, you will have to create two projects (Business payment plan required). It is usually handier to create a whole project in one language first and then copy and translate it.
To copy a page, go to page Settings > Actions > Duplicate. To move the page to another website, go to page Settings > Actions > Move page to another site.

Unfortunately, it is impossibe to copy and paste the entire website. We are working to make this possible, however.
Set up the header of both projects adding an ME204 menu block, or one of the universal menus: ME301, ME302, ME303 or the 'hamburger' menus: ME401, ME402, ME304. Go to the block content and add the languages and links to the projects.
To create webpages in three languages (Russian, English and German, for example), do this:

— Add EN / DE to the Russian-language website
— Add RU / DE to the English-language website
— Add RU / EN to the German-language website

This way, users coming to your Russian-language website can switch to German or English versions. If they find themselves on the English-language website, they can swtitch to Russian and German languages.

It is impossible to create websites with more than three language options without specialist help.

Different languages within the same website
If you have a single page website and do not need a header (ie elements visible across all pages), you can create different versions of a page within the same website (use Free or Personal payment plans).

Set up two pages in different languages adding an ME204 menu block, or one of the universal menus: ME301, ME302, ME303 or the 'hamburger' menus: ME401, ME402, ME304. Go to the block content and add the languages and links to the projects.
