Drupal - Integration / Setup

Translate your Drupal website

Translate all your content and make your Drupal website multilingual within minutes.

1) Create an account on Weglot

First, sign up for a Weglot account.

We'll send you an email to validate your address. You'll then be able to access your Weglot account.

2) Create your project

After validating your email, you’ll be taken to your Weglot Dashboard. Name your project and select ‘Drupal’ as your website technology.

3) Add your new languages

Now, you need to indicate to Weglot your Drupal website language and the languages you wish to translate it to.

Then, add your website's URL.

You can choose the type or URL you wish to use for the integration. Both options are good for your SEO. The only differences are the URL structure. For example, for the French version of your website, the URLs would look like:

If you don't have a domain name yet, click the "connect Weglot to your website without it" link instead. You'll only have to provide the original and desired languages to translate your website into. Proceed to step 5 of this guide.

4) Create your subdomains

In this step, you’ll create your SEO-friendly subdomains, for example, fr.mywebsite.com (if you want to translate your website into French). 

You will need access to your domain name provider account. The following video demonstrates the process with Google Domains – check our videos for other domain name providers or contact us at support@weglot.com if you need any help.

In the section where you add your CNAME entries, ‘name’ will be the language code given to you in the Weglot setup process and the ‘data’ section will be the value given by Weglot. 

Here, the name is en, and the value is xxx.translate-cf.weglot.io.

⚠️ The value is an example and will be different in your case.

After you’ve saved this entry in your domain name provider, go back to your Weglot account and click on the ‘Check DNS’ button. This should turn green but may take up to 10 minutes to do so.

5) Add your language switcher

Copy the piece of code from your Weglot setup process.

You can use the module Asset Injector to add the Weglot snippet to your Drupal website's header. Create a new script and paste the snippet there. Make sure to check the "Load the script into the header" option.
