Adobe Experience Manager - Integration / Setup
Translate your Adobe Experience Manager website
Translate all your content and make your Adobe Experience Manager website multilingual within minutes.
Step 1: Create a Weglot account
This is where you’ll manage your website translations, manage your translation settings, and other customizations depending on your needs. Create account.
You’ll then receive a validation email that will take you to the Weglot Dashboard.
Add a project name (e.g. your website name) and select your ‘Website technology’ – in your case, it’s ‘Other’.
Step 2: Add your new languages
The next step is to add the URL of your website, the original language of your website, and the languages you’d like to translate it into.
Step 3: Create your subdomains (important for multilingual SEO)
Here you’ll create your new language subdomains, e.g. fr.mywebsite (French example). You’ll need to connect your DNS records, so you’ll need access to your domain name provider account to do this.
Note: this example is using Google Domains, however, the process is similar to other domain name providers. Contact us if you need any help: email@example.com.
In your Weglot account setup process, you should see your DNS entries, similar to the screenshot below. (This example is showing French).
Go to your domain name provider account and find the ‘DNS’ tab. You’ll need to create new entries in the section that should be called ‘custom resource records’ or something similar.
Select CNAME as the ‘type’, enter your 2-letter language code given in the previous step in the ‘name’ section and ‘websites.weglot.com’ in the ‘data’ section.
Click save and then go back to your Weglot Dashboard and click on the green ‘Check DNS’ button. This can take a couple of minutes or even 10, so don’t be surprised if the green tick hasn’t appeared immediately next to your DNS records.
Step 4: Add your language switcher
Here you’ll need to copy and paste a piece of code from your Weglot account setup into Adobe Experience Manager.
In Adobe Experience Manager, open up your ‘Template HTML page’ and paste the code inside the ‘Head’ section.
