Case study:Creating a multilingual website

8 November 2022

One of our clients operating in Amsterdam originally set up their website with online bookings and payments in English. They now want to have a second website with the same functionality in Dutch.

Rather than creating an entire new system, with associated costs and maintenance, we applied some of our existing translation classes to let them host the same website in the two different languages using the exact same files and functionality.

When the website is accessed through their .com domain it appears in English with all text forms and payment options using English, while the .nl version of the website presents the exact same pages and forms in Dutch.

The client is able to directly edit the text content of the website in both languages and updating the various forms and other generated content is simply a matter of entering translations for different words and phrases in through website back-end.

This does not have to involve having multiple domains. Another client has their website in three languages using a similar system with cookies.

We also have clients using Google Translate for automated translations, but the results of this can be sub-optimal and you get no SEO advantage.
