    Hi! I would like to create a site with the contents in two different languages (Spanish and English). I have created already the contents in Spanish. Like in many web sites, I would like to include a menu tab named “English” so that when the visitors click on it, all the contents appear in English. How can I do this? Thanks a lot for your help!!!

    The blog I need help with is irenekopetz.wordpress.com.

    We do not have FTP access and we bloggers cannot install any plugins, we cannot use Microsoft or Google translation widgets or any others, as they are JavaScript and it’s stripped out to preserve security on this multiuser blogging platform. http://en.support.wordpress.com/code/

    However, 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/
    Note: You can copy and paste the code on my Translations page and then replace every occurrence of my blog’s URL in the code with your own blog’s URL.

    Hi Timethief!
    Thanks a lot for your reply, it is very useful!
    However my idea was not to automatically translate the contents of my website but instead, I want to be able to paste my own translations. In other words, when someone clicks on the “English” tab, the website will be translated into English with the texts that I have produced. is that possible to do?
    Thanks a lot in advance for your reply! really appreciate it!

    Automatic translation is not available to WordPress.com blogs. If you are bilingual or multilingual and want to publish your free hosted WordPress.com in two or more languages but do not want to rely on machine translation that can be done see here > http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2013/02/25/wordpress-com-multilingual-blogs/
