    hi folks

    i have already seen a lot of the content in codex about managing multi lingual sites, but most of it doesnt really relate to my setup.

    i need a site in 2 languages (mostly not blog format) – in 2 separate templates/themes, 2 different nav bars, different content, the only thing connecting the 2 is the language selection on the top.

    i would prefer managing the 2 sections from the same admin section. is this at all possible or is the best/easiest solution to install 2 separate instances of WP?

    thanks in advance!

    I think because you want two different themes for each language you would have to go with two installs and create a menu at top on both sites to link them.

    Changing templates, nav bars and content is not a problem with most multilanguage plugins. I’ve just not come across the ability to change themes.

    Thanks for the reply!

    essentially it will be the same Template, just that everything will be different (logo, nav bars, text direction, content etc) – thats why i thought to relate to them as separate templates.

    Ah, okay. I didnĀ“t understand. Then you should be able to do it with a multilingual plugin as suggested by keesiemeijer. I use WPML for my sites. Please note that I just had a conflict with WordPress 3.4, so if you decide to go with WPML, use WordPress 3.3.2 or wait for the new WP release.
