Ghost CMS - Integration / Setup
Translate your Ghost CMS website
Translate your Ghost site and go from local to global in minutes with Weglot.
1) Create an account on Weglot
Your Weglot account will be the place where all your translations will be stored, and where you will manage them. Simply create a Weglot account here:
2) Select “Other” as your website technology.
3) Add your domain URL, original language, and desired translated language(s).
You’ll be shown a screen where you can enter your website’s domain name (which you are probably hosting via a domain name provider like GoDaddy or 1&1, for instance) as well as the original language of your site and the languages you’d like to translate it into (you can change these later, if you want).
Click “Next” to go to the next step.
4) Go to your DNS provider to add the 2 CNAME entries provided by Weglot.
This will allow you to have a dedicated subdomain for each translated language and thus have a fully SEO-optimized website in all languages.
Head over to your domain name provider site, open your DNS records table and create two new “CNAME”-type entries. Copy and paste the entries provided to you on your Weglot setup page into these respective spaces.
Go back to your Weglot setup page. Once your DNS entries have been successfully configured (you can refresh their status by clicking the “Check DNS” button at the bottom of the screen), you should see two green check icons appear. This means you can click “Next.”
Then go to your Ghost admin > Settings > Code injection > Site Header.
6) And voilà! Your blog/site is now multilingual!
Go to your website, you should now see the Weglot language switcher at the bottom right of your website. Click on the translated language you selected and check out your newly-translated blog!
7) Manage your translations
Weglot provides you with a first round of automatic translation, which is a great way to save a lot of time when managing your translations. You can edit your translations as you wish, or order professional translations directly inside your Weglot dashboard.
