Button for multilingual site

Recommended Posts

Site URL: https://www.patricialindner.com/

I used code to make my site multilingual. I would like to have two buttons to switch languages, english and german. I would like the buttons to be transparent with just a white outline and white text that says EN and DE. Can anyone help with this? I would like these buttons to be in line with the nav links if possible. site password is Patricia. Thanks!

First, change your scripts

From:

/*setup language switcher*/
$('body').prepend('<div class="language"><a href="/en/home" class="lang-en">English</a> | <a href="/de/home/" class="lang-de">Deutsch</a></div>');

To: 


/*setup language switcher*/
$('body').prepend('<div class="language"><a href="/en/home" class="lang-en">EN</a> | <a href="/de/home/" class="lang-de">DE</a></div>');

Secondly, add to the Custom Css

.language a {
    border: 1px solid #fff !important;
    padding: 5px;
}

@JennWalker Add 2 sections in Footer for 2 languages

  • Top section for English
  • Bottom section for DE

Next, find this code

if (lang == "de") {
    $('a[href="/"]').attr("href", "/de/home/");
  }

edit it to

if (lang == "de") {
    $('a[href="/"]').attr("href", "/de/home/");
	$('body').addClass('body-de');
  }

Next, add this to Code Injection > Header

<style>
  body.body-de footer.sections section:nth-child(1) {
  	display: none;
  }
  body:not(.body-de) footer.sections section:nth-child(2) {
  	display: none;
  }
</style>

Thank you so much! That worked great. The only issue is the disclaimer is now pushed up on the button. Not a big deal, I can just delete it if needed but do you know how to fix it easily?
