you need a translator, then right click on the language you want and click "copy Shortcut" then unsert you image then insert a link then paste it into the URL, then delete your translator box then hay presto!

need more help? just say!

You could take it a step further and do as alex said and use a translator, copy the entire translated page, make a new duplicate page and paste the translated copy but leave it out of the menu, (you would have to also duplicate any photos) then link to it with a flag or button. your site will have both pages but only one would show in the menu so it's not too busy.

buttons - http://www.aaa-buttons.com/html/1-8.s...
flags - http://www.fg-a.com/flags.htm

you could 'save page as' - that would do the duplication part of this tutorial

the same people Guido suggests charge only $10 for a personalised translation - this may be your answer.

you mean the text in the flash is not translated, pictures are universal.

Cool bra. I use and recomend that one too. My only thought is that the translator doesn't do a perfect job. If it is only the one extra language she wants and needs it to be accurate the second page option would allow her to make corrections and have it permanently on her site. Either way works though...

P.S. Did you get the L shaped photo done? let me know if you need a hand with it.

Wow, thanks, I will probably have to ask you a few more questions, you make it sound so simple, I checked out your old page, and that is just what I had in mind, I would not use a translator to translate since it often comes out strange.
And thanks guido for the button and flags : )

Hello jenny,

This site I created in two languages:
sribuaban.synthasite.com

The two parallel lines were created without the use of a translator.

It does mean creating the menus manually . Your landing page is written in two languages thereafter, (except for the blog) everything is duplicated.

The google translator works best of all for most languages but as you say some comes out strange. This is language dependant.

Hope this is of some guidance.
