Thinking about creating your wedding website in another language? Perfect! Follow these instructions to translate your website.
Step 1: Finish creating your wedding website in your default language
Once you’ve finished set up your wedding website, and you’d like to create the exact same website in another language this is when you can click on the “Languages” link (only available in WedSites Pro, learn more here).
From here, click on the “Add language” link and select your language from the dropdown and Save changes.
This step will duplicate your existing wedding website so you can start translating it into another language.
Using the dropdown (shown below), you can easily toggle between the different language version of your website.
Step 2: Translate the duplicated version into another language
It's important to make sure you’re on the correct language before translating the existing website into the other language.
To start, click on the “Edit language” button to make any changes to your names and the wording on the RSVP button.
Below is an example of a Japanese translation, but you can literally translate your website into any language!
For the other parts of your website, it's just as easy as clicking on the different sections and translating the text.
If you're wondering how to translate the Navigation menu items, these titles have been automatically generated by the section header and titles that you've created so you will find these within your website.
Make sure to "Save changes" after every section that you edit.
Once you’ve completed the translation, you can easily switch between the two (or more) versions of the website by using the dropdown toggle or the navigation menu!
Step 3: Assign a preferred language to guests (optional)
If you'd like to take it a step further, you can assign a preferred language to each of your guests by going into your guest list manager.
Click on a guest's name and under the "Details" tab, you'll find a new field called "Preferred language" where you will find the new languages that you've added to your website.
By selecting a preferred language for a guest, they will automatically see this version of the website when visiting!
