Translate your Jimdo website

Make your Jimdo site multilingual with Weglot

Translate Jimdo website

Translating your Jimdo website and making it multilingual can be a complex, painstaking process. The platform doesn’t offer a high-quality native or official solution, so users have to manually re-type all the pages and articles on their in their target language(s). 

This is, of course, not very efficient (nor optimized for SEO), and it can be incredibly time-consuming.
