I've set up a website in german by modifying a commercial template that doesn't support localisation/multilanguage.
Now I need a french and an english version of this website. On the website there would be a small menu 'choose your language: d / f / e'. By choosing a language, the page content, navigation items and permalinks need to appear and stay in the appropriate language.
I've looked at http://codex.wordpress.org/Multilingual_WordPress. The One language per post seems the most natural method to me. Yet I'm completely clueless as to
a) How I'd do that
b) How i'd get information on how to do that.
I've tried and installed Xili Language. Problem is, documentation is rather sparse and their english is even worse than mine, making it harder (and sometimes impossible) to understand.
As I'm somewhat on a time schedule, I also considered Each language in its own WordPress installation as it seems a little bit less time consuming than to hack my template.
What would be the most convenient way for me to make it multilanguage and where would I start?
