Bilingual blog. (3 posts)

    Is there any way I can build and maintain a bilingual blog via WordPress? If I could have one column of posts in one language, and another column right next to it with the posts in the other language, it would be ideal. :)

    There are the addins "polyglot" which became "language switcher"
    http://www.poplarware.com/downloads/language_switcher
    and "gengo"
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/gengo/
    both are I believe no longer being maintained. The former was maintained till more recently (just last month), while the latter is only really working on word press up to 2.5. I am using the latter. It has a bug or two (in that the categories are not always translated) but other than that it works okay. The problem is that is is preventing me from upgrading which is dangerous.

    And language_switcher has also stopped being maintained, so it does not seem worth it for me to move.

    I wish that this functionality were more supported. Good luck.

    The person that created language switcher moved to the rival blog software Drupal, which is made to be multilingual out of the box. I have used Drupal in the past, and found it more difficult to use.

    I'll analyze both of these options. Thanks!
