    Hello guys, 

    I would really prefer that you work on this issue, using buttons as menus is not an option for me. While some templates have this others don't, why don't you incorporate this feature in every template otherwise this is discriminating the ones for the others...we do live in a global world and one language is not enough...the manual multi language setup is a nice try but it's extremely limited and becomes frustrating. Can you please do something about this...honestly if I am going to pay for something I will pay if it fills all the needs and this one is really missing. Thank you

      Thank you for your honest feedback, we realize currently our multilingual solution is quite limited, we do agree with you about the world becoming more connected and global, as you said so well, one language isn't enough. We are happy to say we are working on a much better solution, it will take some time of course but the result, when offered will be pleasing.

    Language Change

    Hello Guys! I've seen some people here already managed to change the language or add more language than one. And some templates you offer already have this thing. I understand that for me to add more language i need to use button as my menu instead of the usual menu but my design will change and this is not an option, i hope you can offer this as feature but with more easier option to use. It's unfair you offer this to new templates and not an add-on to the old users as we all pay premium accounts, i have 3 premium accts and this will be great feature if i can translate my old site here to different languages.

    Hi, I noticed on the bilingual templates you can switch between languages without it reverting back to the homepage each time. I don't really like those templates and already created most of my English website, I watched the video and did as it said. I am really pleased that I can not have a bilingual site but I am not too pleased that it constantly reverts to homepage when I flick between languages. Can you please advise how to add that function to my website? Do I just need to put my buttons for switching languages inside the gridlines for my website like my 'menu' buttons or is there a way to keep it in the header but function the way I would like it to? Thanks in advance for any help :)

      Hi,

       

      Thank you for contacting us.

       

      In order to fix the problem please change the language button destination in each page.

       

      For example, go to the "About me" page ,click on the language button -> Settings, and in the "Link to this destination" field choose "Sobre mi".

      It changes it on all the pages. Does this mean I essentially need to put the language buttons on each page rather than attach it to the header?

    • rotemc Wix Team

      Replied by rotemc 4 days ago

      Hi,

      Yes, you should Group all the buttons together, and copy and paste them to all of the pages on your website, and not attach them to the header.

       

      Please let us know should you require any further assistance.

    In our site we have menus and sub-menus - for sub-pages.

    How can we make our site into different languages with a menu that has submenus?

    thank you.

    bilingual page with drop down menus

    i cant find a way to combine 2 characteristics required for my website - 2 languages and drop down menus.

    according the tutorials, making a bilingual website requires replacing the "automatic" menu with a menu made of single buttons. problem - i cant seem to find a way to build a drop down menu made of buttons.

    im currently using th HTML5 editor. any workaround for this problem?

      That is dissapointing.. How about using sub domains? This is the solution weebly is offering...does it meen that I have to pay for hosting 2 websites?

    • rotemc Wix Team

      Replied by rotemc 4 days ago

      Hi giladsivan6,

       

      Please note that in order to connect a sub-domain to Wix you need to purchase a sub-domain from your domain host. Once it is purchased, you will be able to connect it to a Wix site.

       

      However, please note that you cannot connect a sub-domain to a specific page in your website. Therefore you will need to have another Wix website which will the sub-domain will connect to. 

      To read more about sub-domains, visit this page.

       

      Connecting a domain to your site is a premium feature, if your site is not yet upgraded please click here.

       

      Please let us know should you require any further assistance.
