    doing a website.
    i want to integrate a link that will switch to French when on the English version of the site.
    A link that will switch to English when on the french version site.
    can you tell me how i can do that?

    see an example here: http://canada.gc.ca/accueil.html

    on the right corner, there a link that switch to the other version


    The blog I need help with is expertebeniste.com.



    I’m sorry but that’s not possible on a free hosted WordPress.com blog. We cannot only set one interface language here > Settings > general and there are no themes we can use that provide what you want.

    There are code restrictions here at WordPress.com. No iframes and no JavaScript can be used. 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. Google translation widgets are Javascript and it’s stripped out to preserve security on this mutiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    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.


    oh no… it’s not exactly what i want.
    i will create the page in english. i just want to click on english then ma english that i would made will appear instead of french and the menu will be in english and will refer to all the english pages…

    not sure if it’s clear…



    I clearly understand you. That cannot be done on a free hosted WordPress.COM blog. You can hire a web hosted and set up a WordPress.ORG install and do that. But you cannot do that on the blog you have here at WordPress.COM.
    WordPress.com vs. WordPress.org http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/


    ok thanks



    I’m sorry it wasn’t the answer you wanted to hear.


    not a problem



    Best wishes.
