    Hello, and thanks in advance for your help...

    I have 2 domains, one is mysite.gr and the other mysite.com. The first will be in Greek and the second one will be the same site in English ( translation done by me, not automatically... )

    This is all working fine so far but i would like to have a language switcher on the site so that when someone lands on a specific page they can click the language switcher /flag and they will be taken to the same specific page on the other language site...

    Will multisite language switcher allow me to do this in a simple fashion or is there a simpler way to do it??

    I could easily put a couple of flags linking one site to the other in the nav bar but this would not take me to a specific page on the other site, just to other site and i was hoping to be able to get it a little more specific than that...

    Thank you, i hope i have been clear...

    Warm Wishes.

    I was just looking through creating a network etc and it seems like a lot of work and yet another learning curve that i would rather not take on right now unless it is really going to be the best choice and save me time down the road...

    I am open to suggestions and ideas and knowledge...

    If anyone knows of an easier way for me to solve my problem above it would be wonderful...

    thanks in advance for your help...

    ok i am considering two choices, choosing between multisite language switcher plugin ( free ) and wpml plugin ( paid ) .

    Both seem to be very well organised and updated etc and both need multisite and networks enabled from what i understand so far...

    Can anyone give me pros and cons for either or any reasons why i should choose one above the other?

    ok, i see that wpml does not require multisite and have found some pros and cons to each by looking around so i don't need to have any answers here, thank you...

    i went with the multisite language switcher and set up multisite and domain mapping and i am very pleased!
