I have a Wordpress website that needs to be available in two different languages. We have the articles written in both languages already.

I've seen a lot of solutions providing automatic translations but this won't work in this situation because we have to use translations produced by government approved translators.

What would be a good solution to allow each article to have 2 versions and allow switching between them with a button or dropdown?


I think and use the way about an WP Multisite install, see my answer, background, information and benefit on a older question.


WordPress does not have multilanguage capabilities out of the box. You will need to use a plugin like WPML or CMSwithTMS. These plugins will add the capability to publish translated versions of a page/post.
