How does it work?

Once you're finished building the site in your main language, add Wix Multilingual. During the setup of the app, you'll select your main and secondary languages. 

You will then be prompted with the option to translate your site manually or automatically, so you are in control over how the content is adapted to different language versions of your site. This allows for efficient and customizable language management as your site evolves.

You can also manage your translations: add more languages, translate new pages or elements in your site, remove languages, and more.

Manage your translations with ease

Translate or review both your site and apps content in one place using the Translation Manager in your site's dashboard. 
The translation manager shows a list of all of your site's content in a single location, indicating what still needs to be translated. You can also hide or delete any languages that you no longer wish to display.

How visitors navigate your multilingual site

Your site visitors can switch languages using a language selection menu that is automatically added to your editor when installing the app. 
The menu shows all published languages on your site, and you can even decide on the order in which the languages appear. You can customize the menu to your needs, personalizing the design, layout, and text.
