Hi. I am a translator and need a multilingual web site to promote my services. In the past, have used Wordpress for a web site but discovered that it cannot accept languages like Russian, Chinese, Arabic or other exotic languages. So I went out and subscribed to Site5, which can accept these. The techies there could not help me get started but suggest that I create the site with Wordpress. However, because Wordpress does not accept the exotic international fonts, I am stuck. I am looking for a web designer who can handle Site5. I looked around for Asian site designers but found only sites that make you negotiate via the site in question but do not enable you to communicate directly with the designer. Any ideas will be appreciated. Perhaps someone knows of a good designer who is not too pricey.

Are you sure that Wordpress cannot work with exotic languages? Google "Wordpress unicode" and I think you might find how to do it.

Thanks for that, John Jun 8, 2016

I had heard that Wordpress sells add-ons for various languages. However, this would be for sites using only those languages plus the usual Eurocentric ones. Unicode sounds like what I want. Thanks again!
