Setting up languages 🌎

Step 1/4: Set your website language

Tell Unicorn Platform what language your main website is using.
Navigate to Website Settings > SEO:

Set website language.

Step 2/4: Re-make your website in another language

Clone your website or create a new one. Populate it with content on another language. Publish it.

Two separate websites with content in different languages.

Step 3/4: Set the remake's language

Set the other website's language in its Website Settings > SEO tab. Same as you did it in the first step for your main website.

Set the language of the new website.

Step 4/4: Link up the websites

Now you only need to link up the language versions.

Go back to your main website's Website Settings > SEO and add the cloned website as a language version:

Add another website as a language version.

That is all! Now your websites are linked.
Unicorn Platform will put meta tags to inform Google about your setup. Google will start giving search results depending on your audience geo.

Perhaps you also want to add a language selector widget? We have it πŸ‘‡

Add the languages selector widget πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺ
[optional]

The language widget will allow your visitors to select a preferred language.

Language select widget.

The widget can be added in Website Settings > Widgets:

Adding the language widget.

You can add the language widget to all or some of your websites.

After changing a website's language settings, please re-activate the widget to apply the changes.

Link pages with META tags πŸ”—
[optional]
[advanced]

There is a more precise way to tell Google about your languages set up. You can cross-link specific pages.

To link a page to its other language version, add this meta tag to the page's head section:

<link rel="alternate" href="https://de.example.com/pricing" hreflang="de" />

For example, I want to state de.unicornplatform.com/pricing as a German version or unicornplatform.com/price
Here is how:

Linking pages.

The language widget is smart enough to look for the <link> tags you set.
A URL to another language website in the widget will be replaced to a URL to a particular page in another language. Automatically.

You can find the language codes needed for hreflang="de" here.
