    Hello,

    I'd like to propose contents in two languages in my wordpress blog : english and french. I have couple questions about it :

    - Do I need to have 2 different hostings or domains for it?
    - If I use one host for two languages, will it be harder to have good seo score?
    - What is the best wordpress pluging for that?

    Many thanks

    3. Polylang (https://polylang.wordpress.com). It's free. I used it on a client's site the other day, and it works great.

    1. You don't need 2 different hostings or domains. You can use subfolders or subdomains.

    2. No, but if you don't code right you might get errors.

    3. Here's a plugin on CodeCanyon that has a lot of great reviews. It's $20 tho so you might wanna' try PolyLang mentioned above first.

    I have very basic skills in coding, so maybe I can make mistakes...Do you think I should keep it simple by creating another hosting/domain or it's not that tough to manage?

    Just make a direction for second language by using subdomain. You don't need new hosting either. There is plenty plugins on WP for changing language one of them is polylang

    There are many Wordpress plugins to help you make two version of one post on your wordpress and just simple switch between them with a single click.
