Going Multi-Lingual

GSM Automotive

The GSM Automotive Ltd site is now multi-lingual with some content in Spanish, German and Polish. Much of the translation is handled through WPML and was undertaken by an external translation company, but in-line with the requirements of the clients certain sections remain in English. I have never fully understood why WPML, great as it is, does not have a default language fallback allowing a site to “fill in” missing pages with the default language version, but it doesn’t. In the case of this site though there is no real issue as content is delivered through custom plug-ins developed as part of the design process.

I’m pretty pleased with this site, designed by Niki Peach, and I’m glad to say, so is the client!
