Hi - I have searched the forum and support for a long while searching for an answer so hopefully I'm not asking something someone has already asked..
I am about to create a fairly big website/blog for a friend's safari company - about 120 pages in total!
This first site will be in English, but then he also wants it to be available in French, Spanish, Italian, Russian....we have all the perfect fluent translations ready, and so don't need/want to use a translation service.
This has stumped me somewhat. My newest idea is this - is it possible? Once I've finished the English site to 'pefection' (if there is such a thing) could I create a new domain (eg kingsafarifrench or kingsafarispanish) then duplicate the ENTIRE English site to each new domain, complete with all navigation etc? I would then happily sit and copy/paste each page's text into the appropriate language.
For blog/news stories, he is aware that he would have to do this manually in each domain.
I plan to 'map' our existing domain http://www.kingsafaridahab.com to kingsafari.wordpress.com and would add some flag images on the home page to link through to the other language domains. Would this all work, or am I insane!? Stumped for another option..!
(I know I could use wp.org with the qTranslate plugin but this looks complicated!)
Any advice or ideas very much appreciated.
