Languages for Website Translation

From Wiki openElement
Jump to: navigation, search

The languages selected in the Translations tab of the Preferences menu represent the languages that the website will be translated into. Visitors will then be able to click on a language's flag (or link, or button) to view the page/site in that language. This requires the use of the Language Flags element.

A website's default language is the language in which all pages are created. Any text must be written in this language, and it can then be translated into the other enabled languages.
