This article is especially directed to WordPress blog users, be they hosted individually or on WordPress.com. We also process more classical internet sites as well as Overblog blogs.
So you’ve translated your blog or website with Flavius, congratulations!
If this is not the case, go to this page to do so.
Now that the hardest part is done, foreign users that are on your website must be able to discover the language version that is directed to them.
Here’s how to proceed with your WordPress blog:
1. Go in the menu “Widgets” situated under the “Appearance” section
2. Drag and drop a “Text” widget in the “Sidebar” on the right
3. Open it by clicking on the little arrow to the right of the title and modify it as follows:
Title: Put whatever you wish here (in the example “My blog in other languages”)
Widget body: Links should be placed here, and eventually a little explanatory text. Here are mine, for example:
<img src= ‘http://flavius.reverso.net/img/languages/it.png’ /> <a href=”HERE ITALIAN ADDRESS ITALIEN“>Italiano</a>
<img src=’http://flavius.reverso.net/img/languages/de.png’ /> <a href=”HERE GERMAN ADDRESS“>Deutsche</a>
The « img » marker displays a small flag in the colors of the language in which you are translating : you can find this image on you job page.
Don’t forget to check the box “Automatically create paragraphs”
It is considered good practice to put the names of languages in the language itself for example, Italiano and Deutsche, and not Italian and German.
4. Click on Save and return to your site to admire the result!
You may now click on the links and you will arrive on the translated page of your blog. Don’t worry about managing the language on your blog’s translated version: the Flavius bar at the bottom of the page was conceived to assist visitors in navigating between the different versions.
