TL;DR: I'm looking for a way to translate only the content of a specific post in another language, not everything around said post (such as the 'meta' and the 'search' field like this solution seems to do).
Longer version: I'm currently administrating a static-HTML website for a small company that gets updated every few weeks with a new post. Some of these posts are written in French (default language) and English, some also in German, or even Spanish. Currently, every version of every post loads at first, while all non-French versions are hidden by
display:none. Each post has a number of flags to its right, which correspond to the available translations. The user clicks on one of these flags, and with a little jquery magic, the
display property gets switched accordingly, replacing the content of the post with its localized counterpart. Easy.
I'm now trying to port all this to wordpress, such as to hand the administration of the website to someone else, who can potentially be totally computer-illiterate. I'm desperately trying to find an elegant solution, that's both light on code, and easy for some editor to figure out. If anyone has an idea I could dig into, that would be much appreciated.
P.S.: it's important to note that we don't care about SEO, for the specific nature of our business doesn't demand it.
