How to Enable Multiple Language Support

 

Configure your ProProfs site for multiple languages to enhance user accessibility.

 

Use Case:


Imagine you run a help site in English and Spanish. With ProProfs, users can effortlessly switch between languages, making content accessible to a diverse audience.

 

Here's a screenshot of a sample help site offering multiple language support:

Benefits:

 

  • Customize site interface, messaging, and page elements in multiple languages for a global audience.
  • Allow users to easily toggle between languages with a user-friendly language selection drop-down menu.

 

To Enable Multiple Language Support

 

Step 1: In your ProProfs Knowledge Base dashboard, go to "Settings" and select "Configure."

Step 2: Under the Settings tab, select your default site language.

Step 3: Linking help sites together:

 

  • Select "Site is another language of an existing site."
  • Choose the Primary Site.
  • Select "Link sites together with language drop-down" to provide a language selection menu.
  • Standardize URLs for linked sites.

 

Let's say you have a primary site in English with the URL: site.helpdocsonline.com. When you create linked sites for different languages, you want to standardize the URLs to maintain clarity and a cohesive user experience. Here's how you might structure the URLs:

 

English Site (Primary Language):

URL: site.helpdocsonline.com

 

Spanish Site (Linked):

URL: site.helpdocsonline.com/es/

Here, /es/ is the ISO code for Spanish, indicating that this is the Spanish version of the site.

 

  • Save the preferences.

Important Notes: 
  • ProProfs does not automatically translate content.
  • Each language requires a separate site, as content, settings, branding, etc., are managed independently.
  • ProProfs does not provide tools to translate text.
  • Translations can be done offline by exporting and importing the site or by allowing a translator to work within ProProfs with a contributor role.
