How to build a site that supports two languages (Fr or En)
I would like to build a site in two languages: French and English.
Is it possible to ad something like a “Choose your language” option somewhere on a site (like at the top right corner or in the footer) ?
Or does the Templates can only support one language.
The blog I need help with is aleveille.com.

Thank you for answering.
I will look at this this w-end.
Oh, I looked at it briefly.
I think it’s a tool to translate a blog.
I don’t want to translate mine.
I want to be able to offer it both in French and in English.
I was wondering if it was possible to ad a “French/ English” button somewhere to give my user the opportunity to either visit the french or the english pages of m site depending on their needs.
Maybe through a plug-in ?
Thank your for you help.
But I’m not sure my question is clear ;-)
Basically, what I want is to create a bilingual site (French and English) from the same Theme template.
And I want to offer my users the opportunity to switch from the french to the english version of my site (or vice-versa) from a simple click on a link, or a button or anything else.
And as per the Admin point of view, I would like all my site pages (french and english) to be available in the same WordPress Theme Dashboard.
But I think it might not be possible.
I might have to create two identical sites, one in french and the other in english, and ad the button or link you are referring to in your previous answer.
Am I right ?
Thx again for your help and consideration.
I see. To do you so you’ll need to create the content in both language by creating multiple blogs or posts/pages. Otherwise you can use the translation widget: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2011/02/14/translation-widget-for-wordpress-com-blogs/
There are no restrictions if you setup a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a WordPress.com blog, but there are some added responsibilities. We have hosting recommendations at the following link if you are interested.
That’s what I figured.
But then I guess I would need to look for a template that allow the creation/ use of 2 menus.
You can follow the instructions in this guide on how to create your own custom menu: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus . This works with almost any theme/template.
