Multi-Language (multi-site) plugin.

How about a way to add multiple languages to ONE site, as a translation? You all know the sites that have small flags at the top, right? All it takes is to add a function that basically clones the site and shows you the right one regarding which language you want to see! Making it possible to give your client a website with multiple languages at the same time. I've used tons of wordpress plugins that do this, but mostly use the multi-site feature nowadays.

        I'm a designer based in Montréal everything has to be in both official languages. Would be great to have something that simplify the work. :)

        Thanks Peter for the instructions on how to create a multi-language site yourself.

        You can also view the video Nir posted above.

        Pretty easy to solve now, isn't it?
        ■ First, create your site COMPLETELY in one language.
        ■ Next, duplicate each page
        ■ Reorganise the pages and subpages
        ■ Put two ( or three, four,...) "flag" icons or images, somewhere in the header
        ■ Edit - repeat on all pages
        ■ Link the icons to the approriate page
        Done...

        I am not sure that I want to offer my customers google translated sites if that is what this request is about?

        I'd be very happy to see this. Being based in Los Angeles means that many potential clients will need at least a dual language website (possibly three). A server side way to switch languages would be fantastic.

        Making internationalization easy is extremely important. It should work with more than two languages as well.

        Yah, I'm French-Canadian - and in Montréal everything has to be in both official languages.

        This would be very important for me as well, please, please add feature as soon as possible.

        This would be a great feature, that I would definitely use. I am building a couple of multi-language sites and it would be an invaluable feature.

        Thanks for a wonderful product

        Thomas
