How to make a website bilingual website

Question

Hey everyone! I needed some help! I am currently trying to create a website in 2 different languages so I decided to do my research and read an article on Squarespace on how to make one. I did not think it was that professional so I contacted the customer support and asked if there is another way to make a bilingual website and they sadly said I had to know coding.  My current website is https://www.mediaqmarketing.com/ and as soon as you come to the page you get the option to click two buttons. One which gives you access to the English version and the other which gives you access to the Swedish version. What I want to do is as soon as someone clicks on, lets say, the Swedish button, the whole website should be in Swedish. That means that all the english pages I have created should somehow automatically end up in the not linked section of the website. Hopefully you guys understand what I am trying to say. To clarify a bit I found an example of what I am trying to do over here: www.dralessiomocci.com I was wondering if there is anyone who has a quick solution. All help is appreciated! Thank you everyone!

From @paul2009

"There are two ways to achieve this.

One of the most effective is to use a third party translation solution, but these have expensive recurring costs.

The second is to build out the nav structure into the two languages (prefix with en and es) and then show/hide the relevant items. This is most effectively documented in Brad's tutorial, as referenced in one of your links above. There are a few points that it doesn't cover but, in my opinion, it's one of the best explanations for a non-developer to follow. Finally, the Brine-family is the easiest to customise."
