Hello everybody,



I am struggling setting up my own website. It\'s fun but I really don\'t know anything about it. If I understand well a website can contain different directories and each directory can contain different webpages.



I want to set up a website in 3 languages. Does this mean I have to create 3 directories inside my website or do I get it wrong here?



The final target I see in front of me is a general homepage with 3 flags (directing to three different languages). Each language\'directory\' would contain the same info.



Who can guide me any further?



Thanks and sorry if my question is really basic but we all have to start somewhere.



Ann

A classic solution for a multilingual website is to have a start page (Home) in the root folder and then a folder for each language.



Of course, inside the language folder, you may have a whole structure of folder, if you web site is complex enough to require it (normally they are advisable even for small projects).



In general is good practice to keep different items in separate folders. For example, you may have buttons or other graphic elements that change with the language, so you can have a \'pics\' or \'icons\' or \'buttons\' folder for each language, but some other elements stay unchanged, so you should keep them in a single folder at root level (out of the language folders) and refer to them from any language section of your site.



I hope these short notes are helpful.



Gianfranco
