Writing a good blog post takes a lot of time and effort. Translating it into multiple languages is a great way to reach new audiences and make sure your hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.
Unfortunately, most bloggers can’t write in two languages, let alone all languages in the world. That is why we created Hyvor Blogs, a multi-language blogging platform that allows you to automatically translate your writings into 32 languages.
Why translate blog posts?
The majority of internet users are not native English speakers. Translating blog posts into their language allows you to reach a larger, previously inaccessible audience.
Users also benefit, as they get to read blog posts in their native language and gain access to more information.
How to translate?
Due to high costs, human translation services are highly impractical for blog post translation.
Thanks to recent developments in AI, computers can translate blog posts better than ever before. Our auto-translate feature is in fact enhanced by AI, so every Hyvor Blogs user can generate a high-quality translation within a matter of seconds.
How to manage a multi-language blog
Translating blog posts is only one of many steps involved in running a multi-language blog. You also need instruments to edit, schedule, and publish blog posts, as well as manage different language variants of the blog.
Hyvor Blogs has all the necessary features for running a multi-language blog. Our editor allows users to create, edit, publish, and translate blog posts into 32 languages.
Language variants are organized as subdirectories of the main blog. For example, if your main blog’s address is example.hyvorblogs.io, French blog posts will be published on example.hyvorblogs.io/fr.
Translated blog posts are unique and eligible to rank in search engine results. Every language variant of the blog sets a different language HTML attribute value, which helps search engines crawl and index the blog.
How to Translate Blog Posts with Hyvor Blogs
Hyvor Blogs is the easiest blogging platform to run a multi-language blog. Once you’ve signed up and created a blog, you can follow these steps to translate your blog posts.
Add languages for translation
Go to language settings (console -> blog settings -> languages) and add all the languages into which you want to translate your blog posts.
Click the ‘New’ button to add a language. You will be prompted to enter its name and code.
In the ‘Name’ field, we recommend you enter the original name of the language. For French, that would be ‘français’.
Next, enter the HTML language code to be set as the value for the language HTML attribute. You can find a full list of language codes here.
Language code helps search engine bots crawl and show your multi-language blog in the search results.
Publish blog posts
Once you’ve added a language, the post editor will show a separate tab for publishing blog posts.
You can write blog posts for every different language or use our auto-translate feature to automatically generate an AI-enhanced translation.
If you choose to translate automatically, you will be prompted to select the source variant (the original blog post), source language (the language of the original blog post), and target language to generate new translated content.
Blog posts available in multiple languages will display the list of all languages in which they are available.
What about SEO?
Multi-language SEO is hard to get right if you manage your own blog. However, Hyvor Blogs handles everything for you. This includes
All you have to do is correctly set up languages and their language codes, and write content in those languages. You can 100% focus on writing the best content - Hyvor Blogs will take care of technical SEO.
Original and translated blog posts are published separately. For example, you can publish a French translation without publishing the original blog post in English.
The number of published blog posts can vary from one language variant to another. For example - your English blog might have 10 blog posts, French - 6, and Spanish - 2.
Adding a new language will allow you to publish all previously written posts in the newly added language.
