    I have created the wordpress website which is some kind of portfolio. Contains around 3-5 posts.

    I want to make that website to be available for two languages. How can i do that.

    I thought about the copying entire wordpress directory and translate it manually including posts about me and so. Then if my domain was something like

    domain.com - English version

    I would go

    domain.com/bh - Bosnian Version

    Upload it to folder /bh . Basically it would be something like two websites on one domain.


    Question #2.

    Is there any tool/program which allows me to search in specific folder to specific text inside files.

    Example if i have wordpress folder inside and i want to search for a text/string inside that folder.

    Good question. I am also interested in the responses you get.

    Google has a translate widget that can be added to the site, but I do not think that will benefit SEO for languages other than the 1 the site was originally written in.

    ----------------------------

    There is a WP plugin called WordPress Multilingual Plugin (wpml d0t ORGy) that I believe achieves what you're looking for (and it looks to help SEO in other languages).

    The easiest free way is probably with the Polylang plugin. I've used it and it's great.

    +1 for polylang. It's easy to use and does what it says.
