Translating your Website in Multiple Languages (Multilingual Website)

Translating your Website in Multiple Languages (Multilingual Website)

Vacation Labs allows you to have a multilingual website so that Website Language is never a limiting point to your visitors. Most of the customers prefer to view their website in their own language. You can have two types of translation on your website i.e 
  1. Automatic
  2. Manual
You can always choose from the above options to translate your website. In Automatic Translation, the website translation is done with the help of Google Translate. The website visitor can choose from any of the language available from the Google Translate feature, and simply translate the content on the go.
Whereas if you think not all words are properly translated by Google then we have Manual Translation for you! This article will help you add Manual Translation for your content on your website.

Before you start
