Multilingual website

software development


Hi there,

I couldn’t find a good Wordpress 2.5 compatible multilingual plugin, so I made 2 different installations, one for my Portuguese website, and the other one for the English version. I wonder if there’s any way I can have the server redirecting to the correspondent folder depending on the user’s browser settings… is that possible? I know very little of how Apache works, but i think it could be possible if I make a redirect on .htaccess, right?

Anyway, if it can’t be done I’ll just put an American flag on the Brazilian version and vice-versa… but I’d appreciate some comments on this.

The brazilian website:
The english version:



I would recommend doing this anyway for people who want to be able to switch between languages or who get misdirected to the wrong language because of mistaken browser settings.

I would suggest that you take a look at the DreamHost Wiki and Apache documentation on the subject of content negotiation.
