I am building a WordPress site (a page theme and most of the texts are in the theme template) but the client wants the site in 2 languages. Previously I built such sites with joomla, and added 2 different theme templates, a French and a Dutch. Via the language menu I switched to the other language and therefore also the other template. Can this also be done in wordpress?

Hello Kris,

Wordpress doesn't have default feature to use different templates for different pages. Such functionality would require manual changes and it will be hard to update your site since all changes will get overridden every time.

Usually users use extra plugins for multilanguage sites, such as Polylang plugin.

Hello Kris,

Usually users create the design so, that the part that needs to be translated is contained in the content area of the site, i.e. it is a post or a page in wp-admin. Then the plugin allows to translate this post or page.

In your case I assume that this page is inserted directly as a part of the template in Themler, right?
We can try to see what can be done with Polylang plugin together starting with instructions here https://torquemag.io/2018/02/translating-wordpress-website-polylang/

If you want, you can install this, or any other plugin and then share access to the site, we will check how translation should be done.
