Building your website in different languages

Take advantage of our multilingual feature and push your Voog site to the next level.

How do I build a version of my site in a different language?

Click on the '+Add' link next to your sites' language menu.

First, choose a preferred language in the 'Language name' drop-down menu and then type in the name you'd like it to appear in the language menu to the 'Name in menu' field.

In case you'd like the web browser to detect the users language preference by location, choose 'Detect by location' from the 'Which language visitors see?' field. Alternatively you may also select this language as a default for all of the visitors.

Lastly, you'll have to type in the website title in the new language.

The second way to build a new version of your site in a different language is by going to 'Settings ' Structure' and choosing 'Add language' by the header of the menu.

Then, again choose a preferred language, give it a menu name, set the language detection on or off and lastly, add a website title in this new language.

How do I translate my pages into other languages?

Translated pages are bound to each other. If a visitor changes the language of your site then he or she is redirected to the translated version of the same page in chosen language.

There are two ways to translate a page. You can see all of your untranslated pages in your sites main menu as "greyed out".

Click on the 'Untranslated' page name to open up a 'Add a new page' menu that will ask you to type in the page title. You can also change its address if necessary and pick the preferred layout.

The alternative way to translate a page into new language is to go to Content > Structure and by choosing the language you want to translate into from the upcoming menu.

Choose your preferred language from the top panel and expand the list to see all the pages on your new site. You'll see the 'Untranslated' note next to each page that hasn't yet been translated.

Once you click on it, you'll be directed to the 'Add a new page' menu where you'll have to give the page a title, manage its URL and select a layout.

How do I delete a language that I don't need any more?

If you'd like to delete an existing language from your Voog website, go to 'Settings ' Structure', select the preferred language that you'd like to delete from the header menu and then click on the thrash can icon behind the 'Homepage' field.

When clicked, a window will pop up to ask for your confirmation. You can confirm it by selecting 'OK' or not proceed by selecting 'Cancel'.

NB! Deleting a language environment also deletes ALL content and pages in this language. Remember that there has to be at least one language left to make sure that your site is accessible for others.
