We’re excited to announce our latest release, Multilingual on the Blog!
Looking to grow your blog’s audience with readers from all over the globe? Now you can translate your posts and categories into more than 180 languages.
You can translate directly from an existing post you already have -- or create a whole new post in any language from scratch.
At the moment, you’ll need to translate manually, though we’re looking into adding auto-translate in the future.
To start translating, you’ll need to add Wix Multilingual to your site and add at least one other language.
How to install Multilingual onto your site:
First, make sure you have Multilingual installed on your site.
If you don’t, go to the dashboard, then into Apps > Manage Apps > Wix Multilingual > Add to Site.
You’ll see a Main Language, that’s the language your site is in. Click +Add Language to add another to your site. You’ll be able to translate posts and categories to any language you add here.
This is also the place where you can make languages visible or hidden from your site. Hide a language to keep the posts you’ll write in it invisible from your readers until you’re ready to launch them.
How to translate your categories
We recommend translating your categories first, and then your posts. That way, while you’re translating your post into, say, Spanish, you can easily assign it to its relevant Spanish category.
In the dashboard, go to Blog > Manage > Categories
You can create a New Category from scratch, or click the three dots on the side of each category to translate an existing category.
How to create a new post in any language:
Once you have added your language(s), go to the Blog, and Create New Post.
How to translate an existing post into any language:
From the post list, click on the three dots next to any post.
Click Translate Post
Choose the language you want to translate the post into.
Click Create Post and start translating.
Once you’re ready to see it live, hit Publish (make sure the language is visible!). Voilà!
