Hello, I'm very confused right now.
I started a blog on WordPress.com, about a month ago, and I want to make it bilingual (it's only in french right now), but in a way that wouldn't make it visually awkward. I'd also like to avoid doing a second blog simply for the english language. I'd also like to keep it free (that's the main reason I wanted a blog)
I looked a bit online, and was pointed to the "qtranslate plugin". Turns out it's a plugin for the wordpress software, which I haven't installed, though. So I downloaded it, and immediately started depressing when the "famous 5 minutes installation" asked me to do things I had no idea whatsoever how to do (yeah I pretty much suck at using a computer for things that are even a little advanced).
So here's my question. Is there a way to make a relatively user friendly wordpress free blog with two languages (without having to write the same text twice for each article). If not, how do I install wordpress ? The main problem I have now, is that it asks me to put the files I downloaded online by creating a database. To do that, I apparently need to know my host (how does that work in the case of a wordpress.com blog ?) and also I seem to need yet another software to upload the files to the host. It tells me I have to use the control panel. I'm guessing this has nothing to do with the "dashboard". Do I aven have a control panel ? Is there even a sense in installing wordpress for a wordpress.com blog ?
Please help me, this is really driving me nuts. Thanks.
The blog I need help with is jeremydussaussoy.wordpress.com.
