multilingual sites>fao Actionscript; Ben;wino & hirstys


Just looking through some earlier threads , in particular this one re multi-language website help in July :

I've since had all my site completely prof. translated into 5 languages other than english. Each is a mirror image of the other in terms of function and content.
I've also - for sake of seo - found all relevant meta keywords in relevant langs,researched where *competitor* co's in those countries have weblinks & directory etc listings,so that i will add my site to the same places.

I've not yet started submitting my site but intend to submit to DMOZ fairly shortly. I'm a bit confused though as to how you go about submitting a multilingual website - do you have to submit to each of the language catagories ?

Any tips/advice would be much appreciated.

Hi Ken,

The customer never pursued the multi-lingual site so I couldnt really comment further, sorry.

I am intrigued what your business is though! I dont think I can recall you ever posting what you do?

Email/PM me for link exchanges on the above sites

Make Sure...

...that your image and page titles, etc are also translated. It has a major effect.

Thats my last tip from the UK for a week, I head off to the slopes for some serious snowboard action this weekend.

However, the rest of the A4 team are available on 0845 108 0411 or to answer any web or related queries you may have.

Jon and Stuart have both been briefed that livewire residents may be in touch and they will farm your queries out to the rest of the team accordingly if required.

Have a good week.

Hi Ken,

My client never went ahead with the multi-lingual website, we where not responsible for the actual search engine submission etc, as the client wanted guaranteed results, which we couldnt achieve!

Will have a look for info for you, guess its a bit of individual submission work to relevant sections,but guess as you have already translated the site, and meta's etc (also title's?) then I would expect the site to get eventually picked up anyway because of this.
