Hello Daan,

Yola supports UNICODE. This means that you can create a site in any language, as long as you have the necessary keyboard and browser settings.

With regard to translating your site, there are a few options:

1. Use the Google Translate Widget available in the Community folder of the widget sidebar. Visitors to your site will be able to choose the language of their choice and translate their site.

2. If you would like to have your site in more than one language, you could have different pages. One idea would be to have your navigation (menu) links be links which would take the user to either the English or French (supposing those were the two languages you were using) areas of the site. You could then arrange each area using text links. So when a user clicked on the French navigation button they would taken to a "Home Page" for that language, then you could have text links going to each of the sub-pages for that language. Here is a tutorial that will explain creating sub pages: http://www.yola.com/customer-support/....

3. Another option would be to use a template option with a vertical navigation (menu down the side) as this is a good option if you have many pages. You could have a number of English pages on your navigation, and then those same pages but in French. You could alternate one English then one French, or have all of the English pages then the French pages. Please note that the navigation is a feature of the style you select. Here is a link to more information on the attributes of the different styles: http://www.yola.com/yola-style-guide.

I hope that helps!
