Are you an international school? Offer your website in different languages, making it more convenient for parents who do not speak Dutch. If you wish to use this module, please contact our sales department.
In this article, we explain how you can ensure that your website can also be displayed in English.
Once the module is activated, you will notice a change in the page tree. You will now see both NL (Dutch) and EN (English) alongside each other. After activating the module, these will all be white, indicating that they are still empty pages.
Here are the steps to translate the pages:
- Navigate to Pages via the toolbar and go to the page that needs to be translated.
Click on the white dot and choose Configure
- In the opened screen, fill in the Title (the slug will be automatically filled in)
Click on Save
- Once Save is clicked, the page tree will be displayed again, and you will see that the white dot under the EN section has turned light gray. This means that the page has been created but has not been published yet.
- Click on the gray dot and choose Preview.
- The page will then open, displaying only the fixed components (Menu, footer, etc.)
- First, we will add the fixed components to the English version of the website. You can do this by opening the structure and clicking on a fixed component. These are the components that will be automatically displayed on every page. In the example below, these are Top info and Footer:
At the fixed component, click on the three lines, then choose Copied from NL:
- The components from the Dutch version will then be copied. Double-click to insert the translation. Once the fixed components are copied, they will be displayed on every (translated) page.
- After adding the fixed components, we will translate the individual components in the same way by opening the structure, clicking on the three lines, and choosing Copied from NL.
- Once the translation is done, choose Publish Changes to the page.
Wondering if you are on the Dutch or English page? Look at the URL; /nl/ indicates Dutch, and /en/ indicates English.
