How do I put a button that allows people to go between Spanish and English?

  1. I am bilingual in Spanish and English. I want to put a button on each website so that people can navigate between the two different languages. How do I do that? This allows my readers to decide which language they want to read and with the proper interface language for them.

  2. I'm sorry but what you ask for is not possible on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. We can set only one interface language here > Settings > General for our blogs. Google translation widgets are Javascript and it's stripped out to preserve security on this mutiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/ There is no FTP access and we cannot install plugins because this is a multiuser blogging platform ie. our blogs are not free standing and there are security issues that would arise if that access were allowed.

    I have translation on my WordPress.com blogs. There are two workarounds and you will find them here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/02/14/translation-widget-for-wordpress-com-blogs/

    If those do not suit you, you can write a blog post in the two languages and then post the two versions of the entry on the same blog, make each language category, create a custom menu and add the categories pages to it.
