Above you can see an example of a Softr website translated into German and French thanks to Weglot. Click on it and use the language switcher to see Weglot in action!
This account will be the place where you’ll be able to view and manage all your translations. Simply create a Weglot account here.
Select “Other” as your website technology.
Once you’ve set up an account, add your domain name, select the original language of your site and the language you want to translate your Softr website into.
This next step is where you’ll configure your DNS records to create and connect the subdomains. These subdomains will display the translations of your Softr website once configured.
For this example we’re using GoDaddy as our domain name provider – but the process is similar no matter which domain name provider you’ve purchased your domain from (e.g: Google Domains, NameCheap, Dreamhost etc.). If you need any help setting up your DNS records, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On your Weglot account setup, you’ll see the following DNS entries to add (note: this example is for setting up French):
Now, go to your domain name provider account and to the section or page where you can manage the DNS and add the entries shown on your Weglot dashboard (for instance, in GoDaddy, it looks like this).
Save the entries, go back to your Weglot dashboard and click on the ‘Check DNS’ button. This process can take up to 10 minutes so don’t worry if the green tick doesn’t appear immediately on your Weglot setup dashboard. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to proceed to the next step.
This will allow you to add a language-switcher button to your Softr website.
Now, you’ll be able to see the language switcher button at the bottom right of your website. Feel free to test it and switch between languages. Weglot will automatically generate a first layer of automatic translation. You’ll then be able to edit and manage your translation from your Weglot dashboard. 🙂
