I have created a website like blog at http://www.beatleukemia.wordpress.com that is composed of three main pages. Now I would like to translate (by myself) the text of the three pages also in Italian, German, Spanish and Swedish (and perhaps more languages in the future) so that these pages could be available to non-English speakers.
In a pro-made site, I would be able to switch between languages with links at the top of the website. I understand this is a free service and I'll have to go for a more home-made solution.
I thought first of making sub-buttons for each page to choose the language but it looks ugly and kills the user experience. I even thought of simply making many different blogs linking to one another through a sidebar which lists all languages. But before venturing into these creative (thought time consuming) options, I thought of asking the forums so that in case someone else has gone through this before I could get some tip.
Thank you very much for your help!
