Multiple languages for one system

The best method is to create multiple departments with each department having different languages.  Then you would create a department specific HTML Code for each department and paste the the code onto the corresponding webpage, or dynamically switch the HTML Code depending on the language settings on your website.

 

  1. Login to your PHP Live! system as the Setup Admin
  2. Click the top menu Departments
  3. Create a new department and set the language of your choice
  4. Create another department and set the language for the new department
  5. Click the top menu "HTML Code" and select the department from the drop down menu
  6. Copy the Department Specific HTML Code onto the corresponding website
  7. Done!

 

If your website dynamically changes languages based on user selection, typically there is some sort programming involved to set the language preference.  Utilize similar method, serve up the proper Department Specific HTML Code that matches the language selection.  For example, if visitor selects English, serve up the Department Specific HTML Code that is English language set department.  If visitor selects French, server up the French Department specific HTML Code.
