i'm like to know if you will supply this service in other languagues (ex. Portuguese)
I saw on another post that we can't use accents (ex. ã, ó, á ê,) but i tested with preview and it worked fine, but i dont know waht happens when published.
Another question is if it is possible to have the admin area also on another language (ex. portuguese)
If needed i can translate it for you.

Hi Vitor,

Thank you for the translation offer.

At the moment we only have an English version of our website and site builder.

However, with regard to the creation of your own website, 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.

The only area where you cannot enter special characters is when you name your page. This is because your page name is also the filename for this page, and special characters in this filename are not supported.

You can work around this by editing the menu so that the menu links are in the correct language. This is what you need to do:

1) Click on the "Edit Menu" button below the page tab.
2) A dialog box will open up with the list of all your pages. Click on the "settings" link next to the name of each page.
3) In the two boxes type in your desired menu and hover text.
4) Click "OK".

Your menu will be updated accordingly.

I hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any difficulty creating your website in the language of your choice.
