Check out how Weglot works on this translated Weebly demo site: https://www.weglot-translate-wee-bly.com/

This demo website was created on Weebly in English, then translated into French with Weglot. You can change the language with the language-switch button at the bottom-right corner of the page.

Let’s translate your Weebly website!

1) Create a Weglot account

Your Weglot account dashboard is where you’ll be able to view and manage all your translations. Simply create a Weglot account here.

2) Enter your domain URL and your target language(s)

In this step, simply enter your domain name and the language(s) you want to translate your website into.

(DO NOT USE your temporary domain name ending with .weebly.com.) 

Click “Next” to go to the next step.

In the example:

  • the domain is: www.weglot-translate-wee-bly.com
  • the original language is: English
  • the translated language is: French

3) Configure the subdomains in your DNS records

Here comes the most important step: you’ll create new entries in your DNS (Domain Name System) record list to connect Weglot to your website and ensure that there’s a unique URL for each language. The subdomains will display the translated versions of your Weebly website once configured!

Don’t worry if this seems complicated–it’s actually quite simple. 

There are two possible situations here: either you bought your domain name via Weebly or via another domain provider (Google Domain, 1to1, GoDaddy, …).

A. If your domain name is managed by Weebly:

Simply go on your Weebly website dashboard, click your website name on the top-right corner, and click on “Domain” as shown below:

Then select the domain that is connected to your website:

Once you’ve clicked, you will see a table called “DNS records”. Click on “Edit”:

Finally, click on “Add Record”. Select CNAME as the “Type” and add the entries shown on your Weglot installation process. In the end, it should look like the screenshot below. Click “Save” and wait a few minutes.

B. If your domain name is managed outside of Weebly:

If you bought your domain name via an external provider (like GoDaddy, 1&1, Gandhi, Google Domains, etc…), go to your account and access the DNS section, in order to add the entries for each language into which you’re translating your site.

If you are not sure how to do this or where to find your DNS records, we can help you. Just email us at support@weglot.com.

4) Validate the DNS entries

Once you’ve added and saved your entries, go back your Weglot account tab, click “Check DNS” and you should see two green check icons. This means the DNS entries were successfully configured. Now, click on “Next”.

5) Install the Weglot library

This is the very last step of the installation process. We will add a little JavaScript code snippet so we can display a language-switch button on your website.

It’s very simple, you just need to complete the following steps (also shown in the GIF below):

Inside your Website edit mode, go to Settings > SEO; find the “Header Code” section and copy/paste the JavaScript snippet provided on your Weglot account page. Finally, click “Save” and then click “Publish”.

6) You’re all done!

Go to your website, and you should see the language-switch button at the bottom right. It might take a few minutes to appear, so don’t worry if you have to wait a bit.

Try changing the language when the language-switcher appears–and, like magic, your website is multilingual! You can now go to your Weglot dashboard to manage all your translations.
