Show your site in another language

You can show visitors a translated version of your web page using the Website Translator plug-in.

Add the plug-in to your site

  1. Visit the Website Translator setup page.
  2. Click Add to your website now.
  3. Follow the instructions on the page.

Note: Before adding the Website Translator plug-in to a corporate intranet page, ask your system administrator. The connection it uses to send the page for translation won’t be secure.

Pick a language for your site

To send visitors to a translated version of your site, add '#googtrans' and one or more language codes in parentheses to the end of your web address.

For example, to show your site in English and French, you’d add: '#googtrans(en|fr)'

Note: The plug-in works with many languages, but not all.

Find the language code for your language

  1. Go to the Google Translate languages page.
  2. In the search field, enter the language that you want to use.
  3. Copy the letters at the end of the web address (after 'languages/').

If the plug-in works with the language, you’ll see a list of ways it can be translated, including 'Offline'.

The language code shows at the end of the web address.
