Webflow + Bablic Localization for Multilingual - Please critique!


#1

Hello!

I'm from Bablic.com - a website localization startup that makes translating Webflow sites extremely easy.

I set up a site here: http://bablic.webflow.io - Take a look at how the translation is done, basically if switching languages is smooth enough.

You switch languages by just clicking on the widget pictured below (included in Bablic):

Would love to hear your thoughts and some feedback.

This is all done through the free plan offered on https://www.bablic.com

Hi,

The language is show in the url : http://bablic.webflow.io/?locale=fr

1/ Do you control that? Is is possible to have a different URL for the english and french version of one page? A real clean one like mysite.com/carreers along mysite.com/offres-emploi.

2/ Is it possible to have also something like mysite.com/en/carreers along mysite.com/fr/offres-emploi?

3/ Is it possible to make it work with several domains, for example mysite.com/carreer along monsite.fr/offres-emploi?

4/ Also, is is possible to set everything needed for SEO with the localisation of a page?

That's all I got (: I know I couldn't meet my clients requirements without all of this being covered.

Thanks!

Hi Vincent!

1) Yes, it is possible, by using Bablic as proxy. Available with the $50 plan

2) mysite.com/en/carreers along mysite.com/fr/carreers yes, without proxy
mysite.com/en/carreers along mysite.com/fr/offres-emploi yes, with proxy

3) mysite.com/carreer along monsite.fr/carreer yes
mysite.com/carreer along monsite.fr/offres-emploi yes with proxy

4) Yes

Hope this answers your questions, try it on https://www.bablic.com

And read the integration tutorial on http://blog.bablic.com/translate-your-webflow-website-with-bablic/

Thank you Laurent. Does Bablic work on a future solution to provide all these services without the proxy part? For most serious sites, so much money and time is spent for server optimization and speed that relying on a proxy at the third party for localisation isn't something I can bring as a reliable, acceptable solution. Yet we all actively look for a localization solution, it's a tough search. Very very interrested in hearing about any innovation about that.

However with a positive answer to my 4 concerns, I will definitely test bablic and get in touch soon to talk about the proxy.

Thanks a lot and talk to you in a few weeks.

Great question, @vincent!

Localize is fully SEO-friendly.

We support alteration of URLs with language parameters, similar to what you described above.

Our solution works perfectly with multiple domains.

Everything is covered -- from meta tags, to pre-rendering for the Google Crawler with our Node.js plugin, used primarily by self-hosted websites.

We also have an integration tutorial here. => https://localizejs.com/docs/integrations/webflow

Hello @laurentsabbah your website does not mention the proxy etc on its pricing page. Does all of this still hold good?


#7

Hey, old topic but still valid while waiting for Webflow's native solution. How did things go for you guys? Did you look into Localize/Bablic in detail? Did their solutions hold up?

Thanks!
Simon

Also interested in this ! I need it for a large multi-lingual, european campaign and need to figure out if Webflow (in combination with either bablic or localize) is the right tool for this, so any reviews are very welcome !
