Translate Jimdo website

If you want to translate your Jimdo website and make it multilingual it’s quite complex. There was no performing solutions. Actually, the Jimdo solution does not have an official solution to do it. So users generally recreate all the pages and articles in a translated language.

But it’s not very performing and it’s very time consuming.

So when we created Weglot, we wanted to make a simple solution to change that, to help all Jimdo users to get the translation and the multilingual feature to their Jimdo website.
