Multilanguage Posts in Blogger

A common use-case is the one where we want to broadcast multiple language content on a blog.

Blogger itself does not provide such a facility, but I'm here presenting a javascript hack which allows posts to be written in multiple languages, and have flags on top of the page to switch among them.

First of all, you have to write within a single post a different version for every language which you want to support. To do this, you must first set the correct environment. When editing a post, you should switch to HTML view first:


Then, suppose you are writing content in Italian and English, you should add this skeleton:

<div class="lang:italian">
Questo è del contenuto in Italiano
</div>
<div class="lang:english">
This is English content
</div>
Then, switching back to Compose mode will show you the two sentences. Replace them with the actual content you want to display in your blog post.

Then, go to the Layout Editor of your blog and add a new HTML/JavaScript block on top of your blog posts:



Enter there the following code:

<script language="Javascript">
function getElementsByClass(searchClass,node,tag) {
        var classElements = new Array();
        if ( node == null )
                node = document;
        if ( tag == null )
                tag = '*';
        var els = node.getElementsByTagName(tag);
        var elsLen = els.length;
        var pattern = new RegExp('(^|\\\\s)'+searchClass+'(\\\\s|$)');
        for (i = 0, j = 0; i < elsLen; i++) {
                if ( pattern.test(els[i].className) ) {
                        classElements[j] = els[i];
                        j++;
                }
        }
        return classElements;
}

function show_en() {
        var it = getElementsByClass('lang:italian', null, null);
        var en = getElementsByClass('lang:english', null, null);

        for(i = 0; i < it.length; i++) {
                it[i].style.display = 'none';
        }

        for(i = 0; i < en.length; i++) {
               en[i].style.display = 'block';
        }
}

function show_it() {
        var it = getElementsByClass('lang:italian', null, null);
        var en = getElementsByClass('lang:english', null, null);

        for(i = 0; i < it.length; i++) {
                it[i].style.display = 'block';
        }

        for(i = 0; i < en.length; i++) {
               en[i].style.display = 'none';
        }
}

</script>


<a href="#" onclick="show_en();"><img src="PATH-TO-EN-FLAG" /></a>
<a href="#" onclick="show_it();"><img src="PATH-TO-IT-FLAG" /></a>

This adds at the top of you posts two flag images, which can be clicked, showing either italian or english content. Now, the last bit of editing entails activating either language as the default one (otherwise, you will see both languages, until one of the two flags is clicked).

To do so, open you Blog's model editor and click "Edit HTML".


A popup telling you about the dangers of this operation will show up. Tell blogger to take it easy, and start editing your model. You should find the <body> tag, and add the following attribute in it:
onload='show_en();'

Selecting which is the default language which you want to display.

  1. Hi, I've been trying this out and I was wondering How I can change the Italian flag to a German flag. And when I was trying to edit the HTML I wasn't sure where the BODY tag was to add the "onload='show_en();'". Any advice would be appreciated. Also, how would I go to add 3 or 4 flags?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Hi there!

    To change language flags, just look at lines 47 and 48 in the longest code snippet in the post. You will find code like this:

    < img src="PATH-TO-EN-FLAG" / >

    There, you can replace PATH-TO-EN-FLAG with any link pointing to an image of your desired flag. This can be an image even on a site different from the blog you are embedding the code into.

    As for the second question, when you open up the HTML editor of your template, you will find plenty of code. Just search the text "' at the end) and you will find the only body tag in the document.

    If you want to add more languages, you have to include more functions like show_en or show_it. I'm giving you an example here. Suppose you are dealing with english, german, italian, and spanish. You can write, for example, show_de like this:

    function show_ide() {
    var en = getElementsByClass('lang:english', null, null);
    var de = getElementsByClass('lang:german', null, null);
    var it = getElementsByClass('lang:italian', null, null);
    var es = getElementsByClass('lang:spanish', null, null);

    for(i = 0; i < de.length; i++) {
    de[i].style.display = 'block';
    }

    for(i = 0; i < it.length; i++) {
    it[i].style.display = 'none';
    }
    for(i = 0; i < en.length; i++) {
    en[i].style.display = 'none';
    }
    for(i = 0; i < es.length; i++) {
    es[i].style.display = 'none';
    }

    }

    As you can see, you have a variable for each language, one for loop for setting the display attribute as 'block' (i.e., shown), and three (for the other languages) which set the display attribute to 'none' (i.e., not shown).

    Then, you must provide flags for every language, and divs for every language in your posts.

    I hope this helps! If you need further assistance, feel free to ask! :)

    3. You can upload images on any host (list imageshack) or even google picasa, then visualize it, and right click it to copy the Image's URL!
      That's what you must place in img src="..."!

  5. Dear Alessandro

    Thank you for your response, however I can not fix it.
    I tried the absolute path as your instruction, but there is no image still.

    I am so sorry, but I need your help.

  6. ciao Alessandro, a me non funziona. ancor prima di impostare la lingua di default, non vedo proprio comparire le bandierine dopo aver inserito il gadget html/javascript.

    Perche'?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Probabilmente perché nel copia incolla la porzione di codice relativa alle immagini delle bandiere (questa, per intenderci: a href="#" onclick="show_en();"....) deve andare dopo la chiusura dello script, ovvero dopo (/script)

      Ne approfitto anche per ringraziare Alessandro per l'ottimo spunto, ma devo assolutamente un modo per velocizzare il tutto!

      Delete
    2. Sì è esattamente così, mi era saltato quel tag di chiusura nel formattare il codice per il post del blog...

      Grazie per la segnalazione, ho corretto!

      Mi rendo conto che non è il metodo più efficiente per fare un blog in più lingue, purtroppo... :(

    1. Hi Javier,
      I've inspected your blog's code. You should look for < body class='loading' > and add the onload stuff before the closing >.

      By the way, I've seen that you have work-arounded by adding a second definition of the body tag to add the onload java command. I suggest you to delete this work around, as that is non-standard html and it might render badly on some (older) browsers.

      Hope this helps!

    2. I think I have done what you said (I'm not really good at HTML xD) and it works perfect! Thank you again!

  11. Hi Alessandro,
    how do you control the title of the post? the post itself can be manage by html code but the title?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Carlos,
      a post's title is simply an h3-tagged text in a div...
      So, although I did not try this, you might try to put something like:

      < div class="lang:english" >English Title< /div >
      < div class="lang:italian" >Titolo in italiano< /div >

      As your title.

      Please note that this will render as:

      English TitleTitolo in italiano

      until the page is fully loaded by your browser and the code in the body tag is evaluated. Unfortunately, there is no work around to this.
      Note that in some browsers, this might produce a (negligible?) extra spacing in the title.

      Hope this helps, and let me know if this actually works!

      Delete
    2. Hmm, trying to get this to work, where do you actually put the code for titles?

    3. I LOVE this post, it helped me a lot! Tried this title-solution, and if I use style="display:none", the loading time won't bug in the title. One problem I found, that sometimes, not always, I need to click twice on the second language flag to make it work (it "jumps" back to the English page"). I bet there's no solution for this one...

    1. Hello Daniela!

      I'm not Alessandro, but I read you're not the first person to have a problem with this. Here's what I did:
      First of all, it seems depending on your blog the body tag has several attributes (at least in my case), so it's hard to make out like that. When looking at the HTML, you can open a little search field for the site by pressing 'ctrl' + 'g' at the same time. In there you can type "<body" (without the inverted commas) and it will highlight the body tag for you. Then add the attribute that Alessandro mentions before the closing arrow bracket, and there you go. :)
      Hope that helps and good luck with your blog!

    2. Hi Stef!
      Thank you for your tip. Actually, I already did that. Although I found A body tag, there's other code with it and I tried to put the code that Alessandro wrote in it, I even tried it in several diferent places, always before the closing arrow, but it didn't work, it always gave me a error message. Alessandro already told me he was going to take a look at it. I hope he can find a solution, because this would be absolutely perfect for me.
      Thanks so much for your help anyways. :)
      Thanks! :)

    3. You're welcome (too bad I don't have any more tips though). I hope you can get it to work; I'm happy with the solution for my blog. :)
      (By the way, I was curious and did take a peek at your cupcakes. If you checked your blog stats and wondered where that click from Germany came from ... that was me ;) )

      Good luck!

      Delete
    4. Hi Daniela,
      I've looked at your blog's code and I have found this tag:
      < body class='loading' >

      which should be altered as

      < body class='loading' onload='show_en();' >

      Is that what you tried? If so, what is the error message which you are getting? From that, we can try to find a solution!

      Delete
  15. Hi Alessandro!

    About the error message, I'm sorry but I don't remember what appeared.

    So I think I found the tag you're talking about, but it's slightly different though:

    < body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass' >.

    I erased this one and put yours. No problem there.
    Now everything seems fine, but I posted a test post to see if it worked, but it doesn't change from one language to another, it just displays both. I'm probably doing something wrong, but I don't know what. I'm so sorry I'm bothering you again.

    Thank you for your help and patience.

    Hey Stef!
    I actually wondered that, now I know!
    Shame I have not posted anything yet, but you're more than welcome to take a "peek" again, once I start blogging (which I hope it happens soon) if you want, you can leave a message there so I can check out your blog. :)

    Thanks and good luck for your blog too.

    ho provato ad inserire il tuo codice nel mio blog, ma purtroppo non riesco a farlo funzionare.
    Per prima cosa ho creato un post di prova, poi ho inserito il widget delle bandiere ed infine ho provato ad inserire l'ultimo codice nell'html del blog.

  20. Hello,
    thank you for sharing.
    I've tried this out, and it looks ok to me.
    The only thing is that I do not want to use a hyperlink to a flag for the language selection. Instead I want to select the language simply by clicking on a text that says "english".
    So instead of using the "a href etc..." command I thought I could use something like:
    "input type="button" value="english" onclick="show_en();"/ ".
    But that does not work. The buttons seem to be inactive.
    Can anyone make something out of this? I know nothing about HTML :(

    Just one problem appears... When I go on the website, we can see all languages during on second, and then just english.
    Is there any way to avoid this, and directly have only english ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello there!
      I'm happy to see that you succeeded in using this code snippets to translate your website! :)

      Unfortunately the delay which you see is related to the way the onload predicate is evaluated. That is, the code to set english as a default language is executed only when the page is fully loaded, and the map which you are displaying gives a non-negligible delay.

      To overcome this issue, you can manually set the div style attribute to display:none.

      That is, you leave as you have the html code for the english language, and the blocks which have other languages should be changed like this:

      <div class="lang:french" style="display:none">

      Let me know if this solves your problem!

      Delete
    2. Ok! First I did not understand where to add the style="display:none", then I realised it was in the html code of the message. It works perfectly, thanks you very much Alessandro!!!

      By the way, one more question if you mind answering: Do you know any way to lock the language chosen for every visited pages?

      Delete
    3. Hi there,
      I see that could be an interesting and useful thing!

      The easiest way I can think of is using cookies. You can check this page if you want to see how to set and retrieve cookie values in Javascript:
      http://www.w3schools.com/js/js_cookies.asp

      You might set up your code as this: in each function which is setting the language you can call the function setCookie() presented in the link above to store the language name (you can choose whatever name you want for the cookie).

      Then, in the onload function, you can insert a code similar to the checkCookie() one: you check if the cookie is set. If so, you call the function to set the language accordingly. If it is not set, you do nothing.

      Note that this approach will suffer from the delay in setting the language that you experienced before. Actually, using this kind of approach there is nothing you can really do about it, but according to me it's the neatest solution...

      Let me know if this works for you. I'll eventually update my blog post to insert this, because it can be really useful!

    7. Hi Alessandro, tips for you!
      So, I've translated my website in twelve languages thanks to your tutorial (and the help of kind translators), thanks again.
      The pages titles are translated with no extra spacing, and no "English TitleTitolo in italiano" untill the page is fully loaded. Here's how I wrote the titles of the homepage for instance:

      "< div class="lang:english">- Home // Map -< /div>< div class="lang:french" style="display:none">- Accueil // Carte -< /div>< div class="lang:yugoslavian" style="display:none">- Početna // Karta -< /div > et caetera"

      It works well. Then I translated the widget titles. For that you just need to go to the html code, find you widget and this line:

      < h2>< data:title />< /h2>

      Replace "< data:title/ >" by an html writting, like this :

      "< h2>< div class='lang:english'>Most popular locations:< /div>< div class='lang:french' style='display:none'>Endroits les plus populaires :< /div >< /h2> et caetera"

      Here's the result on my blog if you want to check:
      http://www.themeanwhileproject.com/

      Still a problem: I don't know at all how to add cookies and it seems you have an idea about that. Can you try something or at last post the code you're thinking about?

      Good evening, see ya!

  24. Hi Alessandro!!

    First of all, thanks a lot for your post, I've been craving for something like this for a long time. Too bad there's no plugin for that yet in any blog provider (at least that I have found).

    I've added your javascript snippets into a new section called 'Languages' and it works like a charm, even with titles. But then I've seen that my 'Blog Archive' shows both titles: English, and Spanish.

    After that, I've wandered around your example's source code, and I've found out that some of the code you explained above has changed. It seems as if you've removed the title tag in the blog template, and now you add it in every post. Am I right?? It also looks like the javascript has changed (though not much).

    In case you've actually updated your workaround, it'd be nice to update the post. Or maybe there's a new post explaining the last changes. Then, please send me the link to that post =)

    Thanks!!!

  25. Hey Alessandro!
    I used the code you wrote and managed to do everything, but the onload='show_en();' part. Whenever I try to add it before the closing > both languages are still shown on the main page, but when I select the second language, only the second one is shown.
    Can you help me? Thank you!

  27. dear all,
    as many of us spent some time with "body" issue, will write my solution. on my blog line was:

    body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass'

    and changed to:

    body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass' onload='show_hr();'

    to show croatian. to show english:

    body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass' onload='show_en();'

    so, just put your lang insteed xx in onload='show_xx();'

    and many thanks to alessandro, grazie!

  29. Ciao Alessandro,
    so che questo post è un po' datato, ma spero riuscirai a rispondermi lo stesso.. :)

    Ho seguito passo passo le istruzioni per impostare la doppia lingua inglese-italiano ed è andato tutto benissimo fino al famoso "body"

    Nel caso del mio template il codice all'interno di <> è body expr:class='"loading" + data:blog.mobileClass'

    Ho provato a inserire il tuo onload='show_en();' all'interno in tutte le posizioni possibili, all'inizio al centro alla fine, ma ogni volta mi segnala errore..
    In particolare, se lo posiziono alla fine mi dice che "body" deve essere seguito da ">" oppure "/>" e non capisco perchè mi dia questo errore, visto che inserendo il tuo codice non ho cancellato il simbolo ">" che chiude il codice preesistente..

    Puoi darmi una mano? ;(

  30. Nice! This is my implementation with little changes:
    http://jackscode.blogspot.com.br/

    Flags at a side, every < div > that's not the "default" language has a "display:none" attribute
    < div class="lang:english" >< / div >
    < div class="lang:spanish" style="display: none;" >< / div >
    < div class="lang:portuguese" style="display: none;" >< / div >
    that I doesn't need mesh with the blogs internal code, and the text in not-default languages not start appearing and then disappear.

    Greetings!

  33. Hi Alessandro,

    thanks a lot for this, it worked perfectly for me without knowing anything about html =)

    Just one thing, as blogger is organized differently for mobiles, this solution doesn't work from a mobile, and all the text is displayed.

  38. Hello everyone! If you are involved in translation projects, my suggestion is to evaluate a reliable online localization tool that will make things easier for both developers and translators. https://poeditor.com/ is such a tool equipped with many features like automatic translation, API, GitHub and Bitbucket integration, WordPress plugin created to improve users' localization workflow.
