Multi-language sites and CMS fields

Each page and CMS entry is translatable. When creating fields for a Collection, mark whether that field is translatable (some fields won't need translation, like references to other collections, price fields, etc). 

An option for Links should be added to choose a language (in addition to external links, pages within the site, etc).

    Admin response

    From infrastructure improvements, to staffing up our team, we're currently working through various initiatives that will enable us to create a foundation for multi-language sites. Though we can't commit to any timeline, as a team we recognize how important building multi-language sites is to all of you.

    In addition to the shame of not having a native multi-language system, the weglot integration has a serious bug:

    when you share any page via an android device, the URL is / null and therefore sharing fails.

    This is very bad especially for blogs and ecommerce.

    I reported the bug months ago but no one has fixed it yet.

    Weglot is not a solution currently.

    In need of that too. Quite high in the list of needs.

    It would be especially nice to have this moved up from the backlog anytime soon. I have a handful of sites up that could benefit greatly from multi lingual support, instead of having the browser translate the site for a user.

    Content creator sites like blogs, as well as non-profit sites could benefit a lot due to reaching multi-lingual audiences.

    Fingers crossed for a chance to see this feature live soon! Still a critical feature for many of us!

    How can this still not be in progress?!

    PLS listen to your loyal customers.
    It is the ONLY REASON why myself and many other freelancers and also a few big agencies I know are not using webflow.

    We have year 2020 guys. PLS develop that feature asap or raise another round to just buy the knowledge from other companies...

    Whats the current status on this?


    PS: weglot and duplicate pages is NOT a solution. Weglot is waaaay to expensive for bigger clients!

    What is the status of the current work on this issue?

    When reading through the comments it appears to be a deal-breaker for many and the main reason why they leave webflow.

    I really like webflow, however without this feature the value is quite reduced.

    Copy Wix's solution as your MVP.
    Start with the static content.
    Finish with the dynamic.

    So far we're using Weglot.

    Only drawback so far is that I can't figure how to show or hide specific contents (based on language) within a collection.

    I understand that it takes a lot of development work to come up with a robust translation feature (we've tried doing that with creating our own CMS in Laravel, with some success 😅).

    That being said, I do hope it comes sooooon.

    This is the reason why our team is dropping Webflow, literally. Although we love the app, it's just nuts to pay so much monthly for a website that is being built "copying and pasting" pages.

    What a pity :(

    Any updates on this? The last admin response is almost a year ago.

    It is becoming quite basic. People are asking for e-commerce sites not to sell only on their country but specially outside their country, so having 2-3 languages is quite common now a days...

    We need this! It's a major flaw of this amazing tool. Looking forward to see updates

    I'm seeing this and am so bummed. Not sure what my next move is. Staring at a geographic expansion feeling check-mated. Hmm.

    Hi, this is a dealbreaker. was just about to start a site design in English that in the future would have to be in German and Mandarin. whats the deal with this?

    are we stuck with just one language in the site design? am a newbie to webflow and was looking forward to getting involved.

    I would like to develop multi-language for this particular page: https://www.unifiedinfotech.net/services/web-design-new-york/. Is it possible to develop multi language for this page?

    This is the main reason why I can't start developing websites on Webflow in confident for clients. Multi-language support is a must

    The resons I don't move 400 sites to webflow. FYI!

  • Marketing Ripio commented

    Please add this feature!

    We're more than 4K voting this and it's the second most demanded feature in the wishlist. We're all having troubles with multi-language sites and it's a very big issue for SEO.

    There's no other reason to still keep this development in backlog.

    I thought a moment that the Weglot integration would be a solution but it does not include a subfolder like integration... I must have a subdomain or no multilang website...
    I am a new customer and feel a bit sad of this facing problem!

    Can we have any timeline or not so that I stick to webflow or look for alternatives?
