Re: Multi Language Website

hi @theMageComp , thanks very much for answering my post.

 

i'm able to create to store view, however the dropdown menu is not clickable. it is block by my navigation bar and how am i able to style the dropdown menu created, such as moving it ? ( can be done thru Magento Admin Panel?)

 

^ help me take a look at my website again for this< i've created the storeview.

 

refering to your answer:

Yes you will have to edit your header file to have language switcher.

 

is all can be done via Magento Admin panel? or do i need to modify the source code that uploaded into the server?

I do not fully understand your problem but you would set up multi store views (one for each language). When you have done that you would then have the ability to change store views on each product edit page so you could change the titles accordingly. Other setting can be changed for that store view like what language pack to use.

Re: Multi Language Website

I just saw the code from firebug and saw the store views you have created. 1. Default store view 2. Chinese 

Yes those seems to be blocked with navigation menu.

I am not sure if your theme allows from admin, but if not you will need to adjust header part with CSS.

Re: Multi Language Website

Maybe after all you will need Language Auto Switcher based on GeoIP.  You can find it here GeoIP Store And Currency Switcher

Re: Multi Language Website

Hello!

Alternatively, you can check out this GeoIP redirect extension https://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-connect/geoip-redirect-by-amasty.html

By the way, when having a site in multiple languages, do not forget about SEO side: you should have unique meta data and ideally a hreflang tag on all the pages.
