Making a blog bilingual: it can be done easily in WordPress

By | April 1, 2009

I finally figured out how to make our website largely bi-lingual (English and Chinese). The pages, sidebars and footers have all been done. I’m now able to drive traffic to the different segments. And all within WordPress.

I have separated the pages into Chinese and English groups, but the bloggings themselves are still the same. However, the changes should help both audiences feel a little more comfortable with the format. The English side located at We’ll be able to drive a lot more traffic that way! Be prepared if you do check it out: use Firefox (for easy language switching) or install East Asian languages in your PC (it’s on your XP disk – you do still have that, right?).

I wonder if you can figure out how I did it! Clue: Theme Switcher and Sidebar editing!… Do you want to know how? The posts are still mixed so you will encounter Chinese in the blog. But that’s not a problem is it?

      It really was to drive two separate audiences to my site. I haven\\'t created a fully 100% bilingual, but I have gone most of the way. The site\\'s basic content can appear in both languages, English and Chinese. Individual posts may appear in either as relevant to each audience. It kinda works! Take a look.
